Version 4.2.1 - January 2012
The interface between DIGIMAT and PAM-CRASH offers PAM-CRASH users the capability to perform accurate explicit FEA of composite structures where Digimat-MF is used to model the nonlinear, anisotropic and rate-dependent behavior of composite materials.
Product DescriptionProduct Description

Digimat-CAE/Pam-crash is the interface that strongly couples Digimat-MF to PAM-CRASH via the USER DEFINED MATERIAL capability. Digimat-MF is provided as a software library that is linked to PAM-CRASH to offer a strong multi-scale coupling between the nonlinear micromechanical material modeling capabilities of Digimat-MF and the nonlinear explicit FEA capabilities of PAM-CRASH. In this configuration, Digimat-MF acts as an advanced anisotropic, nonlinear and rate-dependent user defined material at each relevant integration point of PAM-CRASH FE mesh.

Key FeaturesKey Features
  • Accurate Failure Prediction:
- Micro (matrix and/or fibers) & macro failure indicators.
- Failure indicators can be strain rate dependent.
  • Accurate Micromechanical Material Modeling:
- Anisotropic: dependent on the microstructure morphology.
- Nonlinear: elasto-plastic, with possibly continuous damage.
- Strain rate dependent: viscoelastic, elasto-viscoplastic and viscoelastic-viscoplastic matrix.
- Temperature dependent: thermoelastic materials.
  • Accurate Nonlinear Multi-Scale Structure Modeling:
- Heterogeneous material: Anisotropic properties are a function of the local microstructure morphology.

  • Efficient & User Friendly Solution Procedure:
- Streamlined multi-scale modeling procedure.
- Intuitive graphical user interface.
