On May the 27th Simuleon and e-Xstream are hosting the free hands-on workshop ‘Accurately predict non-linear behavior of Plastics & Rubbers with Finite Element Analysis’. In this unique co-hosted event Simuleon will present their solutions based on the SIMULIA portfolio and e-Xstream will present their Digimat solutions particularly for usage with SIMULIA Abaqus.
Starting with a lecture session covering the essential concepts of advanced simulation for Plastics and Rubbers, the course also gives the attendees the opportunity with our hands-on workshop, to model advanced phenomena such as permanent deformations, stress-relaxation, creep, impacts and other highly complex events with SIMULIA Abaqus and e-Xstream Digimat solutions.
What topics are discussed?
Polymers such as plastics and rubbers are seen more and more often in daily life. Applications range from packaging and consumer goods to more sophisticated scenarios like the medical industry or even structural parts in the automotive industry. Whatever the application or the industry, it is very important to have an accurate material model that captures all the necessary behaviour that we want to evaluate to determine whether the product fulfils the necessary requirements. Moreover, the way multiphase materials are manufactured (eg injection molded fiber reinforced plastics) has a very dominant effect on local stiffness and strains in the part and needs to be accounted for in the structural model.
Our first presentation “Predicting non-linear behavior of plastics & rubbers with Finite Element Analysis” gives an overview of different material properties that need to be considered and are very often missing in the material description.
The second presentation “Theoretical background of non-linear Analysis“ will give you insights in the possibilities, assumptions and techniques used within non-linear analysis.
The hand-on session 1, teaches you how to perform non-linear analysis for rubber and plastics, by handling tutorials about permanent deformation, extreme deformations, stress-relaxation and creep which you will simulate with SIMULIA Abaqus software yourself under guidance of our Abaqus Application Engineers.
The hands-on session 2, teaches you how to model the thermo-mechanical behavior of composites structures under quasi-static and dynamic loading conditions or the impact and failure behavior of composite structures.
Join us and register for this free hands-on workshop on the 27th of May.
