Digimat software platform functionality to model composite materials have been extended to handle specific and exceptional nano-effects.

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.
