Abstract

The objective of this project is to develop advanced capabilities for processing computed tomography (CT) data into finite element meshes suitable for analyzing the structural response of composite structures. This will include incorporation of manufacturing defects and damage sustained in operation which is detectable in the CT data.  This will be done by developing new geometry-based segmentation techniques that can directly construct geometry from CT image data as well as developing robust capabilities to determine fiber orientation and ply stacking sequences from the image data. These capabilities will be combined with existing capabilities for segmentation-based geometry construction and mesh generation capabilities (with suitable enhancements as needed) to produce an overall system which can efficiently build complete finite element input data suitable for analysis purposes.
