Abaqus Finite-Plasticity (FeFp) material
model -This material model for plastics is
able to capture the non-linear elastic behavior as well as
the development of plastic strain as the material goes beyond
its non-linear elastic limit. The FeFp model can
be calibrated by performing the tests described in the following
available from DatapointLabs. A technical paper describing
the model is posted at testpaks.com. Click here
PAM-FORM - Forming simulations are often
difficult to accomplish because of the lack of material properties.
These data are not easy to obtain because they need to
be measured on semi-molten materials at high temperatures.
DatapointLabs has released two TestPaks
of which the isothermal at is an economical solution
for first pass simulations. Forming applications up to 200C
can be accommodated.
37° C Saline Cell
for biomedical applications- Testing of materials
that are used in-vivo require testing in saline environments
at body temperatures. Mechanical properties at these conditions, such
as stress-strain in tension or compression, cyclic loading,
hyper elastic properties, stress relaxation and fatigue measurements
are now available. Call for details, 1-888-Data-4-CAE
Taber Abrasion Testing- A rotary Taber Abrasion tester has
been brought on line and is available for abrasion and wear
testing on a variety of materials including plastics, metals,
coatings and painted surfaces.To view tests click here
DatapointLabs welcomes two new employees,
Bert Supernaw and Meagan Brown to their team. Meagan received
her degree in Communications with a focus in Advertising and
Graphic Design, and has been hired to assist in Marketing
and Strategic Alliances. Bert, with a B.S.
in Physics and Engineering as well as an A.A.S. in Electronics
Engineering, is involved in the validation, compilation, and
interpretation of test data.
