Official announcement of the second version of benchmarking exercise for longitudinal strength models of UD composites
The second version of the benchmarking exercise has now opened. We welcome participation from groups all over the world to contribute modelling predictions to this exercise.
FiBreMoD at the Marie Curie Annual Meeting
Last Friday, the 5th Marie Curie Annual meeting was held in Leuven. The FiBreMoD project made itself present through the ESR Francisco. “It was a very interesting and insightful experience” – he says.
We're back with the blog entries!
After a long break in the blog entries, here we are again with a little more about Martin.
Let us stop the hypocrisy of nicely matching experimental validations
Experimental validations are vital to any model development. This is also why it ended up to be a key component of the FiBreMoD project. For a long time, I have felt that models for composite failure have been insufficiently validated by experiments. I believe this has several reasons:
