Digimat simulation software for nano-composites materials
Nano composites are functional materials with material properties tuned by the content and type of nanoscopic size fillers embedded in a matrix. Typical targets for performance are electrical and/or thermal conductivity. The functionality of those materials depends largely on the filler content and dispersions which influence the percolation effect.
Your modeling software for the predictive design of nano-composites materials:
Digimat provides means to investigate nano composites on all scales. The percolation effect can be investigated in extremely complex RVEs under full control of particle shape, orientation, dispersion & clustering. Effective properties can be computed using FE or homogenization technology.
Benefits of using Digimat modeling software for nano-composites materials:
- Setup of complex RVE
- Investigation of percolation effect
- Computation of effective properties based on
- FE technology
- Mean field homogenization
Industrial usage of Digimat for nano-composites materials:
The design of functional materials based on nano sized particles poses a great challenge with expensive and time consuming experimental effort. Digital screening of properties allows to efficiently identify material candidates in a virtual test environment reducing the effort and speeding up development time.
In-depth analyses of the material help to understand guiding effects that impact the material performance. Critical imperfections in the material such as clustering of particles can be investigated in a systematic fashion.
