Helius Composite software offers detailed information on composite material behavior without finite element analysis (FEA). Use Helius Composite to integrate materials into your designs.


Predict behavior of composite materials, laminates, and simple structures more accurately with tools for composite simulation available through an easy-to-use graphical interface. New features in Helius Composite help you to:

  • Design bolted connections of composite plates by understanding failure margins and failure modes.
  • More accurately predict the “spring-in” effect of bent and cured laminates.
  • Use more robust reporting tools that now include multiple laminate reporting and fully editable reports that can be exported to Word, PDF and HTML formats.
  • Access an expandable material library with more than 70 fibers, resins and lamina.
  • Explore a multitude of essential composite analysis modules.
  • Benefit from advanced failure criteria including Hashin, Puck and MCT.
  • Access extensive user documentation and support.
