## Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to

• apply the laminate calculation program elamX2 (https://tu-dresden.de/ing/maschinenwesen/ilr/lft/elamx2/elamx)
• use the finite element program Hyperworks (https://altairhyperworks.com) for composite specific numerical analyses
• compare numerical results of simple problems with analytical solutions or solutions of the program elamX²
• recognize composite specific sources of error in numerical analysis
• critical questioning the manufacturability of numerically calculated composite structures.

## Subject of course

Solving of examples on the topics:

• laminate calculation program elamX2 (https://tu-dresden.de/ing/maschinenwesen/ilr/lft/elamx2/elamx
• numerical analyses of composites using Hyperworks (https://altairhyperworks.com)
• Composite specific errors in numerical analyses
• manufacturability of numerically calculated composite structures

## Teaching methods
