The Role of Materials in Simulation-Driven Product Development

DatapointLabs Technical Center for Materials has a mission to strengthen the materials core of manufacturing enterprises by facilitating the use of new materials, novel manufacturing processes, and simulation-based product development. A whole-process approach is needed to address the role of materials in this context.

A Process for Creating, Managing and Deploying Materials in ANSA

Systems simulations involve material models for many materials. Since different kinds of simulations may be performed ranging from NVH to crash, such material files exist for a variety of solvers. It is a difficult task to ensure the self-consistency of material nomenclature for all these cases, such that the materials information is current and the right material files are used for each material. We present a system where materials information is uniformly deployed to CAD and CAE from libraries set up in Matereality. Consistent naming conventions and unit systems are used. Material files are linked to source material data for reference and traceability.
