DIGIMAT is a state-of-the-art nonlinear multi-scale material & structure modeling platform, which helps engineers to design and optimize composite materials in a fast and cost effective way. From small scale nanocomposites via honeycomb sandwich panels up to fiber reinforced plastics, rubber and hard metals, DIGIMAT software covers a large variety of materials being used in automotive, aerospace, consumer and industrial equipment industries. With its six different tools which can be licensed separately, the DIGIMAT modeling platform also offers a high degree of modularity.



A standard combination of the different DIGIMAT tools for licensing would be DIGIMAT-MF, DIGIMAT-map and DIGIMAT-CAE, allowing engineers to close the gap between process simulation and serviceability simulations as well as the consideration of micromechanics in their full scale analysis. For an in-depth look into the material, DIGIMAT-FE allows the user to generate RVEs, mesh them and even perform micromechanical simulations with the generated structures. Willing to avoid extensive experimental testing and sharing generated data with other users of the DIGIMAT community, the DIGIMAT-MX exchange platform is recommended for a first approach during the basic material characterization.

Release highlights:



Removing the boundaries between injection molding and performance analysis of Reinforced Plastics with Digimat-RP/Moldex3D


Early design of reinforced plastic parts has classically faced many difficulties: process information such as fiber orientation might not be available yet, many iterations of design are required in a very short cycle time, material behavior is hardly accessible. These challenges add up to the common difficulty of designing plastic parts with metal based design tools, considering homogeneous isotropic material behavior.

Digimat-RP/Moldex 3D helps to overcome these challenges to accelerate early design of plastic parts and provides a quick and easy access to fiber orientation to structural engineers.

The fiber orientation estimator inside Digimat-RP/Moldex3D is based on fully integrated Moldex3D technology for meshing, flow simulation and fiber orientation computation. User guidance and productivity is assured for structural engineers, thanks to minimal required input, fully automatic meshing and solving, and strict focus on fiber orientation computation.

Digimat-RP/Moldex3D brings efficiency of predictive plastic part structural analysis to a whole new level. Multiple process or design iterations can now be achieved within a single day of work.

Extended support of FEA interfaces

Support of FEA interfaces is extended, focusing on:
•    Ansys 16.0 solver (Windows/Linux), which comes along with the user-friendly ACT plug-in for Workbench
•    LS-Dyna 7.1.2 (Windows/Linux)
