The mixing process is an integral component of the process industry, with a wide range of applications utilized to create tailored products that meet the diverse needs of various industries and customers.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulation products are for engineers who needs to make better and faster decisions and can help reducing the development time and efforts while improving your product’s performance and safety.
Materials information is crucial in engineering and manufacturing as it enables informed decisions. In simulation and modeling, precise materials data is needed to accurately predict real-world behaviour.
Since day one, our customers have been at the centre of our focus. Whether we’re taking care of our existing users or onboarding new customers into our yearly care cycle – quite simply – nothing is more important to us than you, our customer.
At EDRMedeso you learn from some of the industries top experts in their respective fields. With over 1500 collective years of experience in simulation, we provide a host of training sessions to suit your organizations needs
Calculate homogenized material properties with Material Designer
Have you ever had a material that is complex, say a composite, but where the details were not important? The overall macroscopic stiffness however, needed to be right.
Enter Material Designer
With Material Designer we can setup a unit cell of our composite and calculate the homogenized material properties to be used in our analysis.
Material Designer uses the Ansys SpaceClaim Direct Modeler interface. The first step is to define a representative volume element (RVE) of its micro-structure. Here we can chose from a number of different RVE type like Lattice, Unidirectional Composite, etc. and even create our own.
Then we assign materials and mesh the RVE. The meshing uses SpaceClaim meshing which we also could use on it own, which we have written about earlier here.
The result is the homogenized material properties that we later can link to Engineering Data for further use in our project.
We could also take it further to parameterize the inputs so we can get variable material properties that varies with for example the volume ration of fibres compared to the matrix.
