Advanced composite materials with nanofillers are increasingly replacing the metal counterparts in many applications. Design and Manufacturing of nanocomposites need upfront computational tools for detail application specific analysis and characterization. Our current research efforts are focused on developing integrated analytical, CAD & CAE tools for design, manufacturing and application of composites with nano fillers. These integrated multi-scale tools systematically consider and quantify many manufacturing parameters in modeling 3D network of nanofillers in a RVE of matrix. The developed continuum models are used for mechanical and electrical characterization of nanocomposites for various applications. The automated tools with user interface can provide quick what-if analysis and characterization data for manufacturing nanocomposites with application specific properties.
