    Performance Polymers Integrative Simulation

    Integrative Simulation – Considering the Production Process

      BASF's Integrative Simulation builds the production process of the plastic component into the calculation of its mechanical performance (see fig.). Using a numerical FE filling simulation as a basis, the anisotropic fiber orientations at each point of the component are transferred to the corresponding areas in the mechanical component (mapped). This is provided by a completely new numerical description of the material which takes the properties typical of the plastic including

      • Anisotropy
      • Non-linearity
      • Dependence on strain rate
      • Tension-compression asymmetry
      • Failure performance
      • Dependence on temperature

      into account in the mechanical analysis.
