Material Data and Characterization
Availability of material data is a major bottleneck in simulating composite structures. Material suppliers’ datasheets or handbook values do not represent actual properties resulting from individual manufacturing processes. Doing a complete material characterization through a test campaign is often costly and time consuming.
Altair® Material Data Center™ enables designers, engineers, and scientists to browse, search, and compare materials in a standalone application or through the interface of their simulation and optimization tools.
Multiscale Designer is a comprehensive framework to develop highly-predictive and computationally-efficient material models for all material behaviors ranging from homogeneous isotropic to heterogeneous anisotropic. Multiscale Designer reduces the time and cost associated with the development of highly predictive material models with minimal experimental data requirements.
