Multiscale Analysis: A General Overview and Its Applications in Material Design

Posted by MultiMechanics on Aug 1, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Multiscale modeling is a broadly used term to describe any situation where a physical problem is solved by capturing a system's behavior and important features at multiple scales, particularly multiple spatial and/or temporal scales. Applications for multiscale analysis include fluid flow analysis, weather prediction, operations research, and structural analysis, to name a few.

MultiMechanics and Fortify, a Boston-based additive manufacturing company specialized in composite material systems, have announced a strategic partnership to improve the predictability of composite 3D printing. As part of the partnership, Fortify will use MultiMechanics' flagship product, MultiMech, to predict the structural integrity of printed parts before printing, and to help optimize the design by controlling the fiber orientation throughout the structure. Additionally, R&D will be performed to further enhance Fortify's print analysis software, INFORMTM, and generate more sophisticated microstructures using their FluxprintTM process based on microstructure analyses performed in MultiMech.

How Rule of Mixtures is Killing Your Composite Design

Posted by MultiMechanics on Jun 27, 2018 8:00:00 AM

What is considered to be a "composite" is always changing. Just as there is no single definition, there is also no single analytical method that can safely predict their dynamic behavior. Just as you cannot obtain ideal performance by using a single material throughout an entire car, you can't expect to use a single analytical method to predict the behavior of all composites.

The Anatomy of a Composite Microstructure

Posted by MultiMechanics on Jun 20, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Microstructural modeling is often viewed as an extraneous activity when analyzing the behavior of composites. Many engineers use the "system" properties as the inputs for their part design without considering what contributes to that overall system response.
