Thanks for making JEC Europe 2015 our busiest yet!
Many thanks to everyone who dropped by our stand at JEC. It was good to meet you, to learn about your composite design activities, and explore how we can help you further.
Nonlinear collapse analysis of a launcher structure with imperfection sensitivity study
A thin-walled axially compressed CFRP cylinder was studied using the large deformation analysis. Different numbers of axial, circumferential and combined imperfection waves were used to represent the initial shape of the structure. The nominal load used in this sensitivity study corresponded to the SPLA (Single Perturbation Load Approach) Design Buckling Load. The results of the sensitivity study are presented in a bubble chart. Read more...
