Training Class: Advanced Finite Element Modeling of Solid Polymers--Part 2

Seminar

Advanced Finite Element Modeling of Solid Polymers (Part 2)

This class is an extension of the original Part 1 class, and covers in more depth the theory of different material models and includes hands-on exercises designed to teach how to use the different models to solve real problems.

Failure Predictions of Rubbers and Thermoplastics Using FEA

Predicting failure of different polymers can be difficult due to material nonlinearities and sensitivity to the load environment. In this class we will discuss different techniques that can be used to predict both brittle and ductile failure, including fatigue, of different types of polymers.

Finite Element Modeling of Solid Polymers (Part 1)

This two-day, web-based course covers a review of polymer mechanics theory, techniques and tools for experimentally characterizing polymers, and hands-on training on how to perform accurate finite element simulations of polymer components. This is the original training class that we have been gi

High Strain Rate Testing and Modeling of Solid Polymers
Foams, elastomers, and other polymers are often exposed to high strain rates and impact events. Due to the materials' strain-rate dependence, it is important to have accurate experimental data in order to select and calibrate a suitable material model. This class will demonstrate the use of Split Hopkinson bar tests and traditional uniaxial tests, and provide hands-on exercises for how to use the experimental data to calibrate suitable material models.
