Level-1: Experiments (Dedicated Testing Packages in Support of FEA): Experimental packages optimized specifically to provide the customers the high quality data they need for their internal FE Material Card calibration and development.(Hardening/Plasticity, Fracture/Stress-triaxiality, Rate Sensitivity, Kinematic Hardening)
Level-2: Data Analysis (Calibration & Development of FE Material Cards): Providing the customers with ready-to-use FE Material Cards for commercial solvers (Forming, GISSMO Fracture including Rate Effects in Crash Events, Springback, etc).
Level-3: FE Simulations & Validation (FEA and Experimental Validation on a Component Level): Capacity to run full component forming and crash simulations, and validation with reference to actual component response, or even developing lab-scale experimental validation runs. Moreover, we offer direct mapping of plastic strains from DIC experimental data to FE simulations output!
We understand how our experimental data is used in fitting material models, and how it feeds into finite element (FE) material cards, therefore we offer services on different levels
