Material Competence Center

The aim of the LS-DYNA Material Competence Center is to offer the entire engineering service from a single source, starting with the execution of the test up to the delivery of a material map calibrated for the special customer application.

LS-DYNA is regarded as one of the world's most powerful software tools for structural simulation - both in terms of possible model sizes, achievable speed-up in parallelization for cluster systems, and the availability of complex and specialized material models. This offered functionality is extended towards many application areas where coupled systems, e.g. thermal, electromagnetic or fluid dynamic problems, play a significant role.

Access to high-quality material data down to the failure and fracture range is critical for the predictive capability of corresponding simulation calculations, enabling the identification of all necessary model parameters and ultimately the successful calibration of material models. To this end, DYNAmore has in recent years advanced the data acquisition from experiments and the efficient parameterization of material models and recently bundled the competences of our employees with the move to new premises and the creation of a Material Competence Center in Leinfelden-Echterdingen at one location.

The aim of the LS-DYNA Material Competence Center is to offer the entire engineering service from a single source, starting with the execution of the test up to the delivery of a material card adapted for the special customer application. We coordinate the test planning and combine this know-how with DYNAmore's many years of experience in the field of LS-DYNA material models in order to apply methods for efficient parameter identification. In case of special applications, e.g. high dynamics or thermo-mechanically coupled investigations, we cooperate with well-known material laboratories regarding the experimental scope. In addition to the provision of material cards for common and established materials, we also offer the identification of parameters of the numerous extended and more complex material models of LS-DYNA.

Our MCC offers you calibrated material cards and the best possible model techniques:

- Metallic materials up to failure prediction (GISSMO, eGISSMO, DIEM, etc.)

- Polymers and composites (non-reinforced, short fiber-reinforced, continuous fiber-reinforced)

- Elastomers

- Glass (float, thermally or chemically tempered) and ceramic materials

- Connection technology (punctiform, linear, flat)

Furthermore we see our competence in the calibrated transfer of simulation process data from component manufacturing (injection moulding, extrusion, forming, heat treatment, hot forming, casting, solid forming, draping, etc.) into downstream component or full scale simulations (crash, impact, stiffness, etc.). For this purpose we regularly use our process mapper ENVYO, a DYNAmore in-house development.

We are sure that we also offer an economical solution for your constitutive challenge. Talk to us!
