Simulating the Anisotropy of Chopped Glass Fiber-Reinforced Parts
The reduced integrative simulation method employed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF, Darmstadt, Germany, utilizes standard material models obtained from structural simulation. As early as the design phases, the method can factor in the material anisotropy of chopped glass fiber-reinforced parts.
The method is claimed to especially help designers in manufacturing SMEs to assess the mechanical strength of components more accurately in the early stages of product development. According to the scientists, that shortens development times and lowers the costs. The overall outcome is a significant improvement in image quality of structural simulations at the preliminary design stage, compared with the current state of the art.
