Modeling and Simulation

Objectives of the module »Modeling and Simulation«

This module covers in detail the design of FRP components and computer simulation of FRP components using the finite element method. At the end of the module the course participants are familiar with the key philosophies for designing FRP components. They are able to model the performance and failure of such components using computational methods and evaluate the results.

Required knowledge for participation and target groups

The realistic minimum requirements for taking this module are successful completion of the online introductory learning program or the Introductory Module. Ideally participants will have taken the Base Modules of the Composite Engineer course. No special prior knowledge beyond that is necessary for taking this module, however some experience of structural calculations is recommended.
The target group for this module are employees who are responsible for fiber composite structures and components, namely engineers and scientists in all disciplines and industries.

This module is available in German

Important information

Each module of the Composite Engineer course can be taken individually, regardless of whether or not you intend to take sufficient modules to be awarded a Composite Engineer certificate. An online introductory learning program is used to give participants the necessary prior knowledge. Participants are given the access code after registering for the module.

More specific modules are currently in development covering the fields of multi-material-design, ceramic based composite materials, short-fiber composites and production system design and evaluation methods.
