I do PAUT (Phased array ultrasonic inspection) on carbon fiber parts for a small aircraft manufacturer. I’m very interested in what he has to say. I should be able to check it out tomorrow and get back to you.Ran across this recently and it looks like it might help those of us that are weak in the math needed for traditional composite analysis. Being one of those souls afflicted with apprehension at the mention of tensors and such this obviously interested me.
Would any of those HBA members that have real world experience with composite design care to look over this subject and comment on it's validity or usefulness?

Explain. Or it is showing where it will fail mostly at support positions ? It is ok and it is understandable. Composites hate point load. But - i see area, which i have to reinforce to achieve uniform reserve factor.I don't think you're getting accurate results from your support positions. You're getting all corner strain.
I take a look, but time is limited right now and like Vigilant1 I don't have the program. I can't ;justify the cost of the software and really hate downloading trial software knowing that time limits will expire before I have time to devote to proper study.Any one reading this monologue ?
