As a consultancy company, we regularly receive geometry files from external parties. Typically this geometry isn’t ideal for simulation purposes: it includes details that are not of importance for the analysis, while they will negatively impact meshing and simulation time. Therefore, it is beneficial to remove some of the features from the geometry (defeature it) for simulation purposes.
In this blog post, we will be demonstrating the material calibration capabilities of the Material Calibration App, available through the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. Two different materials will be calibrated against input test data, in order to attain their material parameters, necessary for finite element analyses. The resulting material models will include hyperelastic and linear/non-linear viscoelastic behavior.
This post will also highlight some of the exclusive material calibration capabilities of the Material Calibration App.
