The most relevant use case for TECHNYL® polyamides is for parts with demanding technical specifications in harsh environmental or chemical conditions from -40°C to more than +200°C, with complex mechanical loads. A complex design and development process then leads to the validation of the parts. Virtual prototyping and virtual testing play an increasingly important role in this process.
Here, MMI integrative mechanical simulation considering local glass-fiber orientation helps to evaluate and reliably prove the performance of the part by using numerical models for the parts and the polyamide material. Different part behaviors can be assessed, starting from calculations of local stresses and strains in the part, up to failure prediction.
And this can be done for different load cases, from static loads up to crash test simulation, thermal loads or fatigue.
Use the form below to select between static and dynamic loadings and then choose the part type. We offer the following material model types:
- Elastic models for model analysis
- Elasto-Plastic models
- Elasto-Plastic models taking into account aging with coolants
MMI integrated structural simulation has been supporting engineers for more than 15 years, enabling you to understand the real behavior of parts before moving forward into the production phase. Helping avoid costly re-engineering and development iterations, the MMI process allows you to simulate fiber-reinforced parts made with TECHNYL® materials with unprecedented structural analysis accuracy. Reliable laboratory data enables you to fully exploit key material properties at the lowest cost, optimizing new designs and reducing material usage when redesigning existing parts.
