FiberDesign offers laminate design for most any FRP or composite laminate. Designs such as composite parts, panels and laminate structures are all available. Furthermore, we work with most common fabrics and resins and are familiar with most processes used such as hand layup and infusion. Indeed FiberDesign can design the laminate as well as the mold in a 2D or 3D presentation. What’s more, shop drawings are available for fabrication and mold shops.
FiberDesign can additionally supply calculations, depending on the type of laminate. Additionally, S&S is available for most USA states. FiberDesign can work with any laminate design from small to complex.
Composite laminate design and or analysis is accomplished using a combination of spreadsheets and FEA (Finite Element Analysis). Failure modes are based on first ply failure typically using Tsai-Wu. We typically use FEA for plates, but other shapes can be modeled too. For FRP beams we would typically use RISA.
