Composites Library

The Composites library contains operators that calculate multiple composite failure theories.

It is supported for the following set up:
  • Solver profiles: OptiStruct and Nastran
  • Applicable only for 2D shell elements with property definition as per Zone Based Modelling with PCOMPG and/or PCOMP
  • Output Format: Composite Stress in Tensor Format (for example, *.op2)
It is recommended having material allowables predefined in relevant MAT8 cards. The theories currently supported are:
