Maximize the benefit of your simulation
PART Software creates added value
PART Engineering software enables you to make better fact-based decisions in your product development process based on your FEM simulation. The software does not replace your existing CAE tools, but enhances their capabilities and thus creates added value. You increase accuracy, reliability and thus confidence in your simulation results.
PART Software democratizes material knowledge
In order to obtain reliable simulation results, a number of prerequisites must be met. These are: an understanding of the physical phenomena, the availability of the required material data, the correct setup of a numerical model of the material and the correct interpretation of the results. For reasons of cost, time or expertise, this is not always given. This is where the PART software suite comes into play. PART software is developed and used in an engineering environment, so its philosophy is: "From Engineers to Engineers". In this sense, PART software makes knowledge available to a broad user base that can otherwise only be applied by experts.
PART Software provides building blocks for accurate predictive FEM analyses.
With MatScape, the common material modeling tool of the PART software suite, you can easily create ready-to-use material cards for your FE solver. Whether you have comprehensive material data or sparse data of standard properties, both can serve as a basis. For fiber-reinforced plastics, micromechanical models are used that allow an upscaling of the material behavior to the component level as part of multiscale modeling. As a prerequisite, the local texture, e.g. the fiber orientation distribution, of the material is needed, which can be obtained from a manufacturing simulation of the component.
Converse closes the gap between manufacturing and component design by transferring the local fiber orientation, e.g. from an injection molding simulation, to the structural simulation model. Since, especially in the case of plastics, the material does not exist as such but is only created during manufacturing, a holistic approach is crucial to achieve reliable results. In addition, other process data that may be relevant for component and tool design can be taken into account.
Setting up a suitable simulation model and obtaining accurate results is only one side of the coin. The other side is to interpret the results correctly, especially when it comes to evaluating strength. Misjudgments in this area can undo all the efforts already made. Here, S-Life provides a reliable strength assessment of the component by calculating the local utilization ratio. For this purpose, the results are read in from your FE solver and processed automatically. Additional influences, such as the stress gradient or multiaxiality, are automatically taken into account, which an FE solver alone cannot do.
