Summary

A software framework supporting mechanism-based design of high temperature composite structures is described. The framework extends material property databases by allowing the investigation and simulation of small scale behaviors which cause full scale effects. The framework integrates a full range of modeling processes, including automated model generation tools, numerically efficient analysis codes, post-processing and visualization, so as to minimize the effort required to develop mechanism-based models for new behaviors and materials.
