Incorporating material data into simulation analysis

Advanced Material Exchange abilities in Helius PFA enable you to use Moldflow material information in your analyses. Exploring the effects of manufacturing in this way can provide greater accuracy in simulation analysis of parts.

    Advanced Material Exchange

  • As-manufactured simulation using Moldflow New

    Improve the simulation accuracy of injection moulded parts by importing material data and fibre orientations through the Advanced Material Exchange. Transfer as-manufactured simulation data from Moldflow plastic injection moulding simulation software to your structural model. Then, use this data to predict material non-linearity due to plastic deformation and matrix cracking, and conduct a more accurate structural simulation early in the design cycle.

  • Residual stresses and strains New

    Use the Advanced Material Exchange to incorporate the effects of manufacturing into your structural simulation. Transfer residual stresses and strains from Moldflow to provide an initial stress state, and to include possible warpage from the injection moulding process.

  • Support for Moldflow materials New

    Use Advanced Material Exchange with multiple Moldflow materials, including fibre-filled plastics and non-filled plastics. Incorporate the material properties from the Moldflow database, and the results of the manufacturing process, into your structural simulation by transferring Moldflow results to your structural FEA code.
