Xavier Martínez will give an AEMAC webinar about composites

Next January 15th, at 4 p.m., the CIMNE researcher Xavier Martínez will give the webinar entitled “Non-linear multiscale analysis. Proposals for an efficient calculation to simulate components”. This course about the applications of composites materials is within the programme AEMAC Webinars.

The multi-scale methods have gained much importance, to the point that there are already many computer packages that offer them as a tool to make structural calculations.

This phenomenon has been encouraged for two reasons: the need and the possibilities. Nowadays the technology of the materials allows to make more complex micro-structures, which can not be reproduced easily with the traditional numerical tools (constitutive equations) and, therefore, it is necessary to use new methods to characterize the materials. And the increase in computer computing capacity has made it possible for a multi-scale strategy to be resolved to solve some structures. However, despite the fact that it is possible to use these tools, the non-linear analysis of structural components with multi-scale methods is still far from being applied in non-academic cases.

This webinar will present different strategies that have been developed at CIMNE to minimize the computational cost of these simulations and that should allow multi-scale analysis to begin to be applied in engineering simulations.
