PFA HONEYCOMB
 

PFA - Honeycomb Sandwich Structure (PFA_HONEYCOMB)

View Product Datasheet (PDF)

Product Highlights:

         Predicts damage resistance, durability and damage tolerance of honeycomb composite structures.

         Uses an advanced theory to predict the various failure mechanisms in honeycomb composite structures such as transverse shear failure, shear crimping, flexural core crushing, face wrinkling and intra-cell buckling.

         Takes full advantage of GENOA progressive failure technology to predict damage initiation, growth and final failure in honeycomb composite structures.

         Predicts the progressive failure response of honeycomb composite structures with 2D/3D braided/laminated/stitched/woven face-sheets. Structural damage in the composite face-sheets can be tracked beginning from micro-cracking in composite constituents and fiber/matrix interfaces and ending at the ply, laminate and structural levels.

         Uses virtual crack closure and discrete cohesive zone model techniques (VCCT/DCZM) to predict damage initiation, growth and final failure in the interface layers of honeycomb composite structures.

         Extremely effective for analysis of large-scale honeycomb composite structures.

         Can be used as a virtual testing tool to reduce full-size testing of honeycomb composite structures.

         Requires minimal experimental support to accurately predict the complicated progressive failure response of honeycomb composite structures.
