Polymer Testing for Finite Element Modeling

Polymer Testing for Finite Element Modeling

Free, One-hour Webinar

This web-based class will present advanced material testing methods targeting material characterization for Finite Element (FE) modeling.  We will discuss designing a test plan, understanding limitations of different test and measurement systems, and how to take your experimental data out of the lab and into your FE model.

Course Instructor


This class is intended for laboratory engineers, laboratory technicians, CAE engineers, and engineering managers that want to improve their ability to test and model polymer materials.  Having a basic understanding of engineering mechanics is necessary to understand the concepts presented here. 

The class material is independent of the FE code used (e.g. Abaqus, ANSYS, LS-DYNA, COMSOL, Radioss, etc.)

Learning Objectives

By the end of this class, you will be able to:

  • design a test plan for all classes of polymers, including thermoplastics, elastomers, foams, gels, and biological materials
  • recognize basic testing issues
  • determine what tests are appropriate for your materials
  • understand what measurement systems are appropriate for your materials and tests
  • specify potential material model validation tests
