Research Reviews: Processing Science
The CCM Spring Research Review series begin March 4th. This series is comprised of weekly overviews of CCM’s research focus areas. Each weekly session consists of up to four 15-minute presentations on specific topics within a designated focus area, along with a brief Q&A session. The Research Reviews, which are free and open to the public, are held every Wednesday at 11:30am in 106 CMSL through May 2020. Speakers include graduate students, post-docs, research associates, and affiliated faculty members, as well as invited speakers from Government and Industry.

Webinar
Progressive Composite Damage Modeling in LS-DYNA (MAT162 & Others)
This course will provide a comparison between available composite models in LS-DYNA for shell and solid elements, e.g., MAT2, MAT54, MAT59, & MAT162. Among these material models, rate dependent progressive composite damage model MAT162 is considered as the state of the art. This short course will include the theory and practice of MAT162 composite damage model with applications to low and intermediate impact velocities, understanding the LS-DYNA programming parameters related to impact-contact, damage evolution, perforation and penetration of thin- and thick-section composites. Printed copies of all lecture notes will be provided along with a CD containing all example LS-DYNA keyword input decks used in this short course.
