e-Xstream engineering, an MSC Software Company, and software developer of Digimat, the leading nonlinear multi-scale material and structure modeling platform presents Digimat 4.4.1, the unique nonlinear multi-scale material and structure modeling platform for high-fidelity composites simulation.
Digimat lets engineers do both micro- and macro-scale analyses of composites, predicting how they will perform and calculating their mechanical, thermal and electrical properties for use in all sorts of downstream FEA analyses.
Engineers typically start modeling by gathering material information and strand orientation data from Moldflow, 3D-Sigma, Moldex3D, Simpoe or another injection molding simulation solution, in the case of molded materials. Digimat-MAP calculates residual stresses and temperature from the injection molding mesh and defines an ideal structural FEA mesh. From here, many users go straight to FEA - MSC Nastran and Marc for instance, and other solvers that have direct interfaces. They may also use Digimat’s MF, MX, FE modules to look at test data for the composite and its constituents and look at promising material candidates. Users are able to see the tight link between part geometry, material flow during manufacturing and the resulting fiber orientation — and the effect all of this has on the part’s ultimate mechanical behavior.
Material Modeling Software:
Digimat-MF is the Mean-Field homogenization software used to predict the nonlinear constitutive behavior of multi-phase composite materials.
Digimat-FE is the homogenization software based on the nonlinear Finite Element modeling of realistic Representative Volume Element (RVE) of complex material microstructure.
Digimat-MX, the Material eXpert system, has been developed to facilitate the preparation (i.e. reverse engineering, identification), the storage/retrieval (i.e. Material Data Base) and the secure exchange of Digimat material models between material suppliers and end-users, while protecting the Intellectual Property of the involved parties through material data encryption.
