Notes

  • Veryst will provide storage and loss moduli over a wide range of frequencies.
  • The resulting set of parameters can be used directly in ANSYS APDL, ANSYS Workbench, or the input file.
     

Specimen Requirements

  • 3 tensile (dog-bone) specimens


See the description of individual tests for details on specimen geometries.  Note that we request extra specimens to ensure a sufficient supply of specimens for valid testing.

Veryst can also assist in molding standard and non-standard test specimens.  Please contact us if you are interested in discussing this option.

Additional Validation
Veryst can perform additional validation, depending on the target material and the simulation application, through any of the following tests and any necessary component level FE simulation:

  • Impact testing
  • Micro-to-macro indentation responses
  • Other DMA tests
  • Cyclic tests with loading/unloading between different strain levels and zero stress level at different rates
