3 Reasons Why You Should Perform Multiscale Finite Element Analysis

Posted by MultiMechanics on Jun 13, 2018 8:00:00 AM

Many companies that develop new composite materials are surprised when their product does not perform as expected during the physical testing and certification process. In addition to the many years wasted on developing the material, companies often spend more than $50M on developing and testing a single new material concept.
