The Nonlinear Multi-scale Material and Structure Modeling Platform
The challenge today is the shift from metal to composite to bring significant weight reduction in the design. This model however requires a devoted tool for composite design in order to take into account the specific composite behavior. Traditional design tools are not able to define accurately the local composite material behavior, leading to introduction of safety factors and lack of confidence in the design.
Thanks to an accurate description of the local composite behaviour, Digimat technology provides design tools that give the user 100% confidence in their composites products. Accurate material modeling allow one to decrease the “factor of safety” – allowing composite materials to used to 100% of their potential, maximizing their effectiveness against metal and leading to substantial weight reduction.
MSC Digimat tools integrate effortlessly within the current FEA process, bridging the gap between manufacturing process and structural analysis.
Not just a software, Digimat gets and organizes together the whole composite market, linking the gap between manufacturing and performance. Digimat lets engineers do both micro- and macro-scale analyses of composites, calculating their mechanical, thermal and electrical properties for use in all sorts of downstream FEA analyses and predicting how they will perform.
