- GENOA-PFA, marketed currently by Alpha Star Corporation, is an enhanced commercial version of the Composite Durability Structural Analysis (CODSTRAN) computer program that was originally developed in-house at NASA Glenn Research Center specifically for polymer-matrix composite structures. Alpha Star Corporation and the University of Clarkson ha ve made substantial developments to the code under the NASA Small Bus iness Innovation Research and University Grant support. The code won the NASA Software of the year award in 1999 and was given the 2000 R&D 100 Award. The current GENOA-PFA can simulate the initiation and pro gression of damage, ultimately leading to global fracture in advanced composite structures under various loading and environmental conditi ons. It offers a number of capabilities beyond those of programs developed previously for similar purposes; these capabilities make GENOA-P FA preferable for use in analyzing the durability and damage toleranc e of complex aero and space structures that have fiber reinforcements formed as two- and even three-dimensional weaves and braids.
