Virtual Testing Software for the World’s Most Advanced Materials

MultiMech is a multiscale finite element software platform that extends the flexibility and robustness of the Finite Element method down to the microstructural level, strongly coupling the macro and micro mechanical response and integrating materials engineering to part design. 

MultiMech helps companies accelerate the product development lifecycle by virtually predicting failure in advanced materials at an unprecedented level of speed and accuracy.

40% Savings

in time and cost to develop and certify new materials

40 Minutes

run time for FE^2 simulations that used to require 1,140 hours

5 GB Memory

required for FE^2 simulations that used to require 1,151 GB of memory

The MultiMech Advantage

MultiMech is powered by the extremely detailed and accurate FE^2 theory, while competing solutions rely on analytical methods that trade accuracy for speed. 

MultiMech’s TRUE® Multiscale Technology bridges the gap between accuracy and speed, combining the power of FE^2 with our proprietary data compression algorithm. 

Capabilities

-Automatic generation of complex, 3D Finite Element microstructures

-Virtually model almost any material's microstructure

-Accurately model woven composites, continuous fibers, chopped fiber composites, particulates, voids, foams, and more

-Model the effect of individual microscale constituents, including their interactions, volume fractions, spatial distribution and orientation, among other factors

-Advanced algorithm allows for accurate damage modeling, including multiscale transition of micro-cracks into macro-cracks

-Automatic insertion of cracks or cohesive zones

-Progressive damage evolution

-Accurately model fiber-resin debonding and fiber rupture

-Observe how damage caused by manufacturing variation can affect part performance, including voids, resin pockets, inconsistent volume fraction, and residual stresses due to cure cycle and part geometry

-Perform implicit and explicit TRUE Multiscale Finite Element Analysis

-Multiscale nesting scheme allows modeling of a virtually unlimited number of scales 

-Tube Optimizer applies TRUE Multiscale technology to composite tubes and pressure vessels

-Generate, run, and alter models automatically to achieve an optimal tube geometry and layup orientation

-Randomly insert customizable manufacturing defects (resin pockets, voids, etc), resulting in a range of burst pressures for any given tube design

-Run multiple simulations based on design constraints

-Damage criteria include fiber-matrix debonding, stochastic fiber rupture, continuum damage, and matrix cracking

 

-Import process-induced variation data from tools such as Moldex3D and Moldflow and convert it to multiscale, including volume fraction and fiber orientation tensors to simulate injection-molded parts

-Efficient integration with commonly-used FEA platforms, including ANSYS/Workbench, Abaqus, and Simcenter 3D.
