Accurate material models are needed to perform realistic virtual tests on any structure. In our simulations the following material behavior can be taken into account under large deformations:

  • (Visco)-elasticity/plasticity
  • Hypo/hyper-elasticity
  • Rate/thermal dependency
  • Damage and failure mechanisms

Modeling material behavior with any of these models requires parameters which can be determined by material testing and/or numerical analysis. For more information see our Mechanical Testing service and Homogenization service.

An example of our material modeling service is damage tolerance analysis of carbon/epoxy composite for aircraft industry:
