Abstract :
[en] We present an integrated design-analysis framework for three dimensional composite panels. The main components of the proposed framework consist of (1) a new curve/surface offset algorithm and (2) the isogeometric concept recently emerged in the computational mechanics community. Using the presented approach, finite element analysis of composite panels can be performed with the only input is the geometry representation of the composite surface. In this paper, non-uniform rational B-splines (NURBS) are used to represent the panel surfaces. A stress analysis of curved composite panel with stiffeners is provided to demonstrate the proposed framework.
