JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
e-Xstream engineering, an MSC Software company, and developer of Digimat, a nonlinear multi-scale material and structure modeling platform, announces the release of Digimat 6.0, a material modeling platform for material and structural engineers.
This latest release brings a series of new features and improvements in composite materials for Short Fiber Reinforced Plastics (SFRP) to Discontinuous Fiber Composites (DFC) and Continuous Fiber Reinforced Composites (CFRP).The key highlight of Digimat 6.0 is the introduction of JEC Innovation Award winner Digimat-VA, a software solution dedicated to accurate and efficient virtual characterization of CFRP, that dramatically cuts the cost and time associated with material characterization and qualification. For example, generating a B-basis value without extensive experimental work is now just a few clicks away. True coupon strength distribution is finally accessible. Full layup design space can be explored at the fraction of the usual cost. Root cause analysis of early failure can now be understood thanks to the variability modeling integrated in Digimat-VA. New material systems can be explored virtually. Any engineer, whether in the aerospace or the automotive industry, concerned with characterizing a new composite material, exploring the design space or better understanding mechanical properties will find Digimat-VA to be a productive, efficient and accurate solution to save time and money.Additional release highlights include:
