Material Characterization & Qualification (MCQ)

View Product Datasheet (PDF)

Product Highlights:

         Designed to help reverse engineer effective fiber and matrix strength and stiffness properties for tape, weaves and braided material and is limited to un-notched uniform stress coupons subjected to in-plane loading.

         Features integration of modules and capabilities:

o        Fiber, Matrix, and Lamina Calibration - reverse engineer effective fiber/matrix properties from unidirectional test data (strength and stiffness) and fiber and void volume ratios

o        Non-Linear Material Characterization Optimization (MCO) - reverse engineers effective stress strain curve for matrix from in-plane shear laminate test data (e.g., ASTM 3518), or ply from laminate test data.

o        Ply Level Analysis - Predicts equivalent ply properties using fiber matrix properties as input

o        Laminate Analysis - predicts equivalent laminate properties using fiber/matrix or ply properties as input

o        Design Failure Envelope - predicts failure design envelop for chosen failure criteria for laminates

o        Ply Characterization - shows variation in strength with ply orientation and fiber or void volume ratio

o        A- & B- Basis Allowables - predicts A- and B-Basis allowables for un-notched uniform stressed coupons using limited test data or no test data and previously calibrated fiber/matrix properties as input

o        Parametric Carpet Plot -- generates multiple carpet plots that show variation in strength, stiffness and other material properties with variation in mixed layups distribution.

Applications/Benefits:

         Characterize Material and layup for certification.

         Does not require any Finite Element solvers, thus extremely fast.

         Prediction of lamina and/or laminate properties in virtually all types of composite architectures (2D/3D).

         Material calibration based on experimental data.

         Prediction of ply and laminate strength and stiffness.
