Overview:
The application of Digimat MF and Digimat FE gave insight into the influence of microstructure on the overall mechanical and brittle damage behavior of highly porous sound absorbing ceramics. Digimat gave the engineers at bime key in-sight into the elastic properties of these porous sound absorbing ceramics, that was necessary to reduce production cost and increase the material's strength.
Challenge:

 

  • In-depth investigation aiming at material design
  • Prediction of elastic properties of porous sound absorbing ceramics
  • Prediction of pure brittle damage with respect to microstructure
Solution:
  • Reverse engineering of the unknown material properties based on experimental results
  • Virtual compounding of different porous ceramics in Digimat-MF
  • In-depth micro investigation of porous ceramics by Digimat-FE
  • Numerical investigation of pure brittle damage at both micro and macro scales on the porous ceramics
Results Validation:
"The application of Digimat-­-MF and Digimat-­- FE paved the way for me to give an insight into the influence of microstructure on the overall mechanical and brittle damage behavior of highly porous sound absorbing ceramics. I was able to contribute to the improvement of material strength by new material design while keeping the good sound absorption." Reza Malekmohammadi Research Assistant, bime
Benefits:
  • Reduced cost of material production and characterization
  • Increased material strength with improved material design
  • Boosted cooperation between ceramic developer and acoustic user
