TECHDYN Engineering is experienced in the experimental characterization and design of composites structures for various applications. Since material processing influences the performances in services of composites, we have developed a computational procedure in order to account for the effective state of stress and deformation resulting from manufacturing.
Our experience covers a the design with a large spectrum of engineered materials such as thermoplastics, advanced fiber composites (mylar, kevlar, etc.), advanced ceramics, and metal matrix composites (SiC-Ti, etc.).
Experimental capabilities cover full chemical-mechanical composite characterization inlcuding damage tolerance assessment (delamination test, single end notch test, double cantilever beam test, mixed mode test, etc..)
structural integrity evaluation and assessment,
damage tolerance design
low and highvelocity impact
We have implemented a number of advanced modeling solution for better, more accurate and reliable simulation of composite structure. This includes accounting for residual stress-strain state resulting from curing process.
