DIG201 - Digimat Standard Training - Structural Engineering

Horizontal spacer

Products: Digimat-MF, Digimat-MX, Digimat-CAE, Digimat-MAP

This course will teach the student how to use a Digimat material model in their FE Analysis of a composite part that has fiber orientations predicted by an injection modeling or draping simulation. By using a Digimat material model each student will then take into account the non-linear material properties of their composite and effects of local microstructure on their part.

Who should attend: Engineers involved in the design or structural analysis of parts using composite materials.

Length: 
2 days
Pre-requisites : 
Basic theoretical knowledge of material constitutive models (elasticity, elasto-plasticity) is advised. Good Knowledge of one FEA code is mandatory.
Topics: 
  • Introduction to the Digimat Graphical User Interface including the plug-in embedded CAE codes
  • Mean-field homogenization theory as well as the material models available in Digimat-MF
  • Material Database management and automatic calibration of Digimat materials
  • Coupling of Digimat with FEA code in Digimat-CAE. Introduction to the different solution procedure (macro, hybrid, micro) and presentation of the failure criteria definition
  • Mapping of fiber orientation tensors, initial stresses/temperatures between two dissimilar meshes in Digimat-Mat. Theoretical aspects of the mapping procedure are explained
  • Guided exercises to implement the different procedures presented during the course
