Create a New Material File in Moldex3D R15

Material Wizard provides two options to create a new material file, Custom: If you have property data of a new material, you can select Custom to add the property data into Material Wizard. From Exterior Sources: If you find a new material in other sources, you can convert other format of the material file into Moldex3D format of the material file. full post

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. full post

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. full post

New Generation Modeler for LS-DYNA Material Parameter Conversion

We describe a new software component that takes into consideration the unique multi-variate nature of LS-DYNA material models. Rate-dependent models require adjustment and tuning of many material parameters to fit the rate-dependent tensile properties. Drawing upon a robust back-end data model, a graphical user interface provides drag and drop capability to allow the user to perform tasks such as model extrapolation beyond tested data, modulus change, rate dependency tuning and failure criteria adjustment while assuring self-consistency of the underlying material model. Unit system conversions are also facilitated, eliminating error and ensuring that material inputs to simulation correctly reflect the intent of the CAE analyst. The utility of the Matereality CAE modelers is illustrated with examples for LS-DYNA material models MAT_019, MAT_024 and MAT_089 LCSR. full post

Enterprise-Wide Materials Data Management Ensures CAE Fidelity

Virtual product development today has become a complex process involving CAD, FEA, CAE, and physical testing. Material properties form the glue that link the simulation and real life behavior together. Most often, the properties of the materials used in different stages of the product life cycle vary depending on the application. Hence, the engineers and technicians within the enterprise need to have access to not just the simple single point properties that help determine the suitability of a material, but also the more detailed behavioral property data that affect design, simulation and failure analyses. A common platform for the storage and effective deployment of these properties system wide is critical to the efficiency, cost, and quality control through PLM. We present a technology, Matereality that accommodates diverse properties of all the different materials used by an enterprise, its suppliers and collaborators. The cost benefits are immediate, besides improved interoperability and consistency in material data use through the enterprise. full post
