Simulating Reality, Delivering Certainty


Simulation Increases Sales $4 Million by Validating New Cold Roll Forming Process for Customer Applications

Hadley Industries manufactures cold roll formed products, primarily to the building and construction industries. The company developed and patented a unique cold forming process known as UltraSTEEL which significantly improves mechanical and structural properties of the strip steel by imparting a dimpling pattern prior to the roll forming operation. The geometry is much too complex ...

Sample of Auburn University Projects Utilizing MSC Adams

Auburn University fielded a senior design team working to compete in the 2016 AFRL University Design Challenge. The senior design team designed and constructed the TRIAD (Tactical Rope Insertion Assist Device) to assist soldiers in a rapid decent. During the design process, Adams was utilized to model the flexible rope and the TRIAD and simulate ...

The Virtual Weld

Most manufacturing companies rely on empirical data and experience when designing and welding components. Goal-oriented improvements and the adjustment of manufacturing processes often require a considerable amount of time and effort. Typically, for example, welding distortions can only be found and corrected in downstream fabrication steps. However, the process accompanying the use of welding simulations ...

Multi-scale material modeling for additive manufacturing

While additive manufacturing of reinforced polymers is appealing and increasingly considered for production of actual parts, major obstacles must be overcome by engineers. Dimensional accuracy of the part must obey to strict tolerances that may not be met due to thermally induced part distortion or poor surface roughness. On the material side, an anisotropic material behavior is brought in by the specific 3D printed layered architecture and oriented reinforcements. This process-induced material behavior make the part mechanical response challenging to predict.

Therefore, Digimat, the material modeling platform, can offer you a solution to overcome your challenges.
