Computer Aided Design Environment for Composites (CADEC)
CADEC is an online application that performs composite materials analysis as described
in the textbook
Introduction to Composite Materials Design--
Second Edition, CRC, 2010. You may wish to try the new
version (14 beta).
CADEC allows the user to calculate a wide variety of properties.
Sample plot of E2 vs. Volume fraction
Cadec can compute the Stiffness, Compliance, Strain and Stress transformation.
All the calculations can be exported to Microsoft® Excel 2010.
Cadec can compute the ABD and H matrices, the hygroscopic loads, strains and stresses.
Example Axial strain Vs. Thickness
Failure criteria implemented in CADEC.
Thin Walled Beams Example output and methods implemented.
