PolyUMod® Library

Advanced Material Models for Finite Element Modeling of Engineering Polymers and Biomaterials

Veryst Engineering now offers the PolyUMod library of user-material models for finite element (FE) modeling of engineering polymers and biomaterials.  Commercial finite element codes lack the material models needed to simulate accurately many types of polymers.  Veryst Engineering has developed a library of general purpose material models that cover virtually all polymer systems, including thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers, foams, filled plastics, and biomaterials.  Specific models have also been developed for particular formulations such as fluoropolymers, PLA (polylactic acid), and UHMWPE (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene).

The PolyUMod library provides the FE user advanced material models as if they were built into the FE program.  Engineers can perform very accurate FE simulations without becoming an expert in material model software development.  A large part of the difficult development work has already been done!  The Veryst PolyUMod user-material model library is available for Abaqus/Standard, Abaqus/Explicit, ANSYS, LS-DYNA, MSC.Marc and COMSOL Multiphysics.  Please see our Frequently Asked Questions for details.

Veryst can also develop customized material subroutines for specific polymers.  To discuss this option, please write to us at contact@veryst.com

The PolyUMod library supports all polymeric materials, including:


Predicting failure and safety factors is an important part of many finite element studies.  Each of the material models in the PolyUMod library can also be used to predict failure.
