Multilayered structures (MLSs) are being extensively adopted in an increasing number of engineering fields, including aerospace, automotive and civil engineering. MLSs are, in fact, greatly advantageous because of their low weight and high strength. MLSs can be of different types, such as fiber-reinforced composites or sandwiches with foam cores. The classical structural analysis tools are often not enough to predict the structural behavior of MLSs The MUL2 project is devoted to the development of advanced structural models for MULSs with particular attention given to the multifield analysis and the fluid-structure interactions.
This website wants to provide an overview of the theoretical bases of MUL2 and its applications. The Carrera Unified Formulation (CUF) for beams, plates, and shells represents the theoretical foundation of MUL2 and, in this website, you will find all the basic steps needed to implement CUF. The capabilities of the Unified Formulation are shown using different applications concerning Aeroelasticity, Aircraft and Spacecraft Desing, Best Theory Diagrams, Biomechanics, Composites, Damage and Failure, Meshless Methods, Multifield Analysis, Rotor-Dynamics, Structure Mechanics and FEM.
