Free Composite Stiffness
and Strength Calculator
All attendees on the course will be able to download a fully functioning
Composite Stiffness and Strength Calculator. As well as forming a useful tool
for many of the homework tasks set, attendees will be able to explore the
implications of composite layup stiffness and strength terms as discussed in
the class. A tutorial guide is also available for download. Loading conditions
can be applied and both Failure Index and Strength Ratio terms are
calculated for all plies. ABD matrices are shown, together with full details of
calculation ply by ply.

Many past attendees have found this tool a useful supplement to post
processing available in their usual Finite Element solution process.The
Calculator has been steadily developed over the last few years of delivering
this course and attendees will be entitled to future upgrades
