Digimat Material Model for Fiber Reinforced Plastics


Digimat is a material modeling platform for composites from MSC Software. It contains several modules for material modeling, fitting of parameters and coupling to FE structural solvers and process simulation software. It is particularly suitable for modeling of fiber reinforced plastics in LS-DYNA simulations. Local material properties depending on the fiber orientation will be achieved through the micromechanical models of Digimat. The modeling concepts of Digimat, the different modules and practical use will be covered for some common analysis types.
