TERMET CAE is intended for design, analysis and synthesis of composite materials. It works with laminar composites, composites with inclusions and composites with fibers and nanotubes that can be used in the electronics, laser technologies, aerospace, automotive and fusion power industry. The industrial attractiveness of the new composites will arise from the combination of properties not possessed by conventional materials such as high thermal conductivity combined with high strength and corrosion resistance. Such advances, expected in the coming years, will be the key to industrial innovation in thermal engineering appliances.

Innovative, interactive approach is based on computational modeling method and realizes several useful features, like data interoperability, flexible material database, GUI, various service functions. System may be used by materials engineers for complete design and preproduction estimation of thermal parameters in new composite materials or for the design of different thermal mechanical details of structures with complex geometry. It is also an outstanding tool for education, training and visual presentations for materials engineers.

I have developed big part of GUI and utility functions, visualization and fibers generation modules. System was developed with usage of Qt framework and C++ programming language. OpenGL and GLSL were used for visualization, and OpenCL for parallel data tasks.

More screenshots from TERMET CAE is here.

Graphical User Interface of TERMET CAE: sandwich composite material (multiple layers)
Graphical User Interface of TERMET CAE: composite with fibers
Results of TERMET CAE thermal analysis for composite with fibers. Horizontal fiber blocks heat distibution.
Fibers generation strategy in TERMET CAE. It's possible to create different topologies of fibers with help of sequential approach. In most cases generation is based on random seed value, so it's required to save only parameters of generation steps, not full set of fibers mesh.
3D results of thermal analysis in TERMET CAE. User can very easily select slice plane and view required part of composite material
Representation of fibers generation strategy in TERMET CAE
Thin aligned fibers in TERMET CAE. It's a nightmare for grid generator.
Two different alignments of fibers is easily created with two different steps in generation strategy. TERMET CAE allows user to determine subregions of composite for fibers generation.
Two different types of fibers in TERMET CAE. Slice plane shows intersection of fibers.
Aligned fibers in TERMET CAE
Fibers with high curvature in TERMET CAE. Unfortunately this type of generation is fully based on random values, and it' impossible to set some type of pattern in current version of TERMET CAE.
Two different types of particles in same composite, plus boundary conditions
Three types of composites in TERTEM CAE: Laminar, with Particles and with Fibers
Temperature change along layers of laminar composite. User can determine line in 2D or 3D, and use it to sample results
Some sort of structure in composite material formed by fibers. Fibers generator in TERMET CAE allows a lot of cool things :)
TERMET CAE also allows user to select subblock of larger composite to be used.
Dialog for aligned fibers generation block. Each block of fibers generation in TERMET CAE has its own dialog.
