CoDA by Anaglyph Ltd.

Lightning Fast Component Design

CoDA can be used to undertake preliminary analysis of sub-components with plate, beam, joint, flange, or laminate geometries. CoDA can also synthesize the properties of composite materials, laminates, and sandwich structures, which can be used in a seamless manner within the design modules.

Structural engineers employing techniques such as finite element analysis (FEA), can perform a brief CoDA analysis to enable potential materials, beam and plate sizes and thicknesses, and support conditions to be selected for further detailed investigation. CoDA is a product of the Composites Group at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL).

Why CoDA?

Instant Understanding of Results

Results are displayed in the form of graphics or tables, in a user-friendly interface.

Based on Validated Experiments

CoDA is based on years of research and validated experiments by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL)

Parametric Option

"What if" scenarios to be evaluated graphically, showing the effect of any change in input or laminate parameter.

Key Features

Composites Preliminary Analysis

Preliminary analysis of sub-components with specific geometries, such as plate, beam, joint, flange, or laminate, taken into consideration as a whole.

Composite Materials Synthesis

CoDA can synthesize the properties of composite materials, laminates, and sandwich structures, for use within the design modules in a seamless manner.

Integrated Modules

CoDA comprises of seven independent, but integrated, modules.


Unique PREDICT module simulates random ply crack formation in off-axis plies, and hence the effects on laminate stiffness.

Wide Range of Industry Applications

CoDA is applicable wherever composite materials are used, including aerospace, automotive, commercial products, marine, and wind energy industries.  

3D Mechanical and 2D Hygrothermal Properties

The synthesis capability of CoDA is used to predict the 3D mechanical and 2D hygrothermal properties of potential development materials to predict microdamage, moisture, and temperature properties.
