Your FEA predictions are 40%-80% off from experiment. Solution: Model your composites as anisotropic, not isotropic.

Question: Consider the plot below of an actual example from Trelleborg. My FEA prediction of my composite part (short fiber reinforced plastic), colored in green, is far from my experimental result, colored in blue. How can I improve my FEA analysis so I obtain a better prediction, colored in red?

Answer: Use Digimat to supply your finite element analysis with anisotropic material information that is specific to the various fiber orientations distributed across your composite. Watch a case study. This solution works on Abaqus, Ansys, Marc, Radioss, and more.
