Veryst provides expert services for product design, manufacturing processes, and failure analysis of polymeric parts and components. Our expertise includes experimental characterization, computer modeling, and engineering failure analysis. Much of our work is based on advanced characterization and physically-based computer models to solve industrial problems involving polymer systems.
The mechanical response of polymeric materials (rubbers, elastomers, thermoplastics, thermosets, and biomaterials) are characterized by significant nonlinear effects, including:
Many of these effects are often active in the intended service environment of a polymer product, and it is important to understand their influence on product performance and lifetime.
Veryst also provides advanced finite element user-material subroutines for simulation of complex polymer materials, including:
