Digimat predicts the thermal conductivity of multi-phase materials such as Polymer Matrix Composites (PMC), Metal Matrix Composites (MMC), Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMC), Nanocomposite, etc.

Thermal conductivity properties for Material Engineering applications

Material engineering applications involving thermal material properties rely on two tools: Digimat-MF and Digimat-FE.


Digimat-MF to simulate thermal conductivity performances of composite materials

For all types of composite material, the thermal conductivity of the composite is computed by Digimat-MF by using the Mean-Field homogenization technique. Thanks to its ease of use, Digimat-MF constitutes as a virtual laboratory where a large number of materials can be tested in a very short period of time. The design of a composite material can then be optimized to reach specific targets.


Digimat-FE to simulate thermal conductivity performances of composite materials

A more in-depth analysis of the behavior of a composite can be performed in Digimat-FE. In this tool, thermal properties and percolation can be investigated. For instance, the effect of the amount of inclusions on the percolation can be studied in a fast and easy way. Percolation paths are tracked and displayed.
