Many products now use composites structures or components, taking advantage of the increased structural strength and stiffness to weight ratios, simpler manufacturing process or more innovative design capability that composites bring. This workshop is an effort in the direction to spread the analysis techniques in the application of composites theory for solving practical problems. The various forms of failure in composites are addressed in the determination of integrity of the structure.


Mechanics & Failure of Composite Materials
  • Material modelling
  • Stress-Strain relationship
  • Strength and stiffness
  • Classical lamination theory
  • Significance of terms in stiffness matrix
  • Failure criteria
  • Interaction criteria
  • Distortion Energy Criterion
  • Quadratic Interaction Criterion
  • Ultimate Strengths of unidirectional layers
  • Ultimate Strengths of unidirectional layers
  • Tension normal to fiber direction
  • Compression in fiber direction
  • Failure modes under Compressive loading

  • Analysis of Composite Bolted joints
  • Pull Through
  • Bearing/Bypass Interaction
  • Bearing Analysis
  • Load transfer
  • All composite failures
  • Compression Buckling
  • Shear Buckling


    The salient aspects of this workshop are -
      The tutorials would be handled by very experienced industry exposed users of Composites.
      A summary of theoretical aspects of composite mechanics.
      Insight into the failure theories of composites.
      Various forms of failure in composites.
      Various aspects of composites bolted joint design analysis.


    NAFEMS is the International Association for the Engineering Analysis Community and it operates as an independent, not-for-profit association. The scope of its activities encompasses all simulation technology, including Finite Element Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics. As new application areas and techniques constantly evolve, NAFEMS becomes involved to create awareness of new analysis methodologies, deliver appropriate education, training and simulate the adoption of best practices and effective use of technology by offering a platform for continuous professional development. NAFEMS and its members are involved in the application of many different types of engineering simulation covering both products and processes. Membership exceeds 1600 corporate members from over 60 different countries.


    This course is aimed at the practicing engineers who wish to learn about the concept of composites and about how to apply to their particular problems in the most effective manner. This course addresses the need of those industries wherein composites knowledge jobs regularly carried out. The contents of those programme are specially designed keeping the needs of junior and middle level analysts who have to apply composites techniques for solving practical problems. The material that is independent of any particular software package, making it ideally suited to current and potential users of all commercial composites analysis software systems. The course is open to both members and non-members of NAFEMS.
