Characterization of mechanical behaviour and numerical simulation

Are you confronted with unexpected changes in product properties or have you discovered systematic errors in the production, forming, transport and storage or in new fields of application? Conventional materials testing does not always resolve the problem, since the stresses that occur in practice are almost always due to components moving in different directions and at different speeds. Furthermore, they may also have different durations and localisation levels.

With the help of numerical simulation (FEM), the individuality of each and every material can be described at any location by an underlying elastic modulus. Entire processes of forming semifinished products or processes that stress products during the utilisation period can be simulated and visually depicted using this process. Processes and product properties can thus be optimised by the iterative adaptation of the most significant of the technologically scalable parameters for geometries and material properties.

We have comprehensive methodological expertise which we, as solution providers, use in combination with our paper engineering know-how to offer you answers to problems of all kinds, often complex in nature.
