Knowmats is an informal repository of information related to materials and simulation. Using a combination of contributor posts, links and preprints, the goal is to assemble a curated collection of information that helps simulation professionals perform best-in-class simulation with a better understanding of how materials are represented in FEA and simulation.
Contributors include simulation professionals, CAE and finite element software companies, material modeling experts and others who are willing to contribute their expertise to improve the field. Knowmats staff will work with contributors to collect their information, create and tag posts.
We are inviting academics, simulation professionals, CAE and finite element software companies, and material modeling experts to provide contributions in the form of:
You can act as individuals or on behalf of your company. Your role as contributor is to curate a collection of posts, links and commentary on your area of interest/expertise. In doing so, the community has the opportunity to gain from these insights as seen from your viewpoint. While it is likely that a majority of your posts may refer to links to papers that you have produced, you have the freedom to refer to papers and links of other researchers and collaborators to help complete the picture.
While Knowmats is not a marketing vehicle it is important to have information in your profile that establishes your credentials and place in the industry. You can also include links to your own web-sites, Linked In and personal contact information in case you would like to be contacted in connection with your Knowmats presence.
Knowmats is currently read-only, so all content will be uploaded by the administrators on behalf of each contributor.
