Structural simulation of fiber composite laminates

  • Micromechanics: Homogenization of the fiber-matrix composite.

  • Macromechanics: Behavior of the single layer, behavior of the multilayer composite, FE-formulations

  • Load capacity analysis: failure criteria, damage analysis

  • Design: Application to FRP components


Lecturer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Luise Kärger (FAST-LB)
