Project Description
This project is to develop an analytical model for complex carbon fiber laminate structures and validate the model through mechanical testing. Carbon fiber structures will be designed to specifications set by SAE International for competition in Formula SAE and Formula Student. Work will include extensive use of MATLAB and FEMAP to develop the model, along with any internally established tools for mechanical fixturing and data acquisition for model validation.
