Reverse Engineering in Composite Material Simulation
Material Engineering is the art of understanding composites in-depth, to innovate materials based on this knowledge and to follow a micromechanical approach to describe their real performance. In general, a direct engineering approach is used, meaning that per-phase properties of composite constituents are given directly in combination with microstructure information and composite properties are computed on that base and allows insight into materials and to systematically understand mechanisms that dominate the macroscopic material properties arising from the microscopic composition.
Material models must correlate to experimental behavior as closely as possible. For this purpose a reverse engineering procedure is used that results in the parametrization of micro-mechanical models and their adaption to a set of anisotropic material measurements to meet the global composite performance best possible.
Design structural parts with in depth knowledge about composite materials specificities in:
Mechanical properties for Material Engineering
For all types of composite material, mechanical performances like Stiffness, Creep and relaxation, Strength and durability are computed by advanced FEA tools by using the Mean-Field homogenization technique to obtain:
• Stress-strain curve of the composite
• Creep and relaxation behavior of the composite
• Average stress and average strain
• Constituent of the composite
• Strength of the composite
• Viscous effects and coatings
• Decohesion at the fiber-matrix interface
