Description

Description

Fiber-reinforced plastic materials provide the means to realize lightweight design and reach CO2 reduction targets. Injection molding helps to reduce costs and to assure a high level of design freedom for the parts. In today's world, each design process is supported by computer simulation, so the performance of the design needs to be investigated in the virtual space. This is typically done by coupling injection molding and structural analyses. To build the necessary procedures, several basic requirements must be met. A good prediction of fiber orientations, a dedicated approach to material modeling with respect to the targeted end performance and quality level of results, as well as a fast and effective mapping procedure for transferring micro-structural information into the environment of the structural analysis are inevitable. To make the coupled approach a success story, each of these points must be understood and respected when setting up the simulation project.

Jan Seyfarth

Dr. Jan Seyfarth is the product manager for DIGIMAT material modeling software at e-Xstream engineering. He received the Bayer Material Science Award for his PhD thesis finishing his education as a theoretical chemist as best of the year at the University of Bayreuth in Germany. In his first employment at CADFEM GmbH he was responsible for the topic of multi-scale simulations for engineering purposes with a focus on micromechanical approaches to material modeling using DIGIMAT software. After 3 years he moved on to e-Xstream engineering where he is now responsible for the development and release of DIGIMAT software. By today, the speaker has accumulated 5+ years of experience in transferring micromechanics to the needs of developers in an industrial context.
