• Finite element-based failure models for carbon/epoxy tape composites 

      Seon, Guillaume (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-04-13)
      Laminated carbon/epoxy composite structures are increasingly used in the aerospace industries. Low weight, elastic tailoring, and high durability make the composite materials well suited for replacement of conventional ...
    • Flange bracing requirements for metal building systems 

      Bishop, Cliff Douglas (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-04-08)
      The analysis and design of bracing systems for complex frame geometries typically found in metal buildings can prove to be an arduous task given current methods. The American Institute of Steel Construction's Appendix 6 ...
    • Implementation of the extended finite element method (XFEM) in the Abaqus software package 

      McNary, Michael (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-05-18)
      This work describes the implementation of the eXtended Finite Element Method (XFEM) in the Abaqus software package. A user-defined element was developed containing the analytical functions relating to homogeneous and ...
