Multiscale.Sim | Multiscale analysis system

A new tool for ANSYS that facilitates materials testing and microscopic analysis of composite materials

The multiscale analysis technique is designed to overcome complex materials problems. Using this technique, all material constants can be evaluated without expensive experimental campaigns. Cybernet Systems Co. has developed a multiscale analysis CAE tool called the “Multiscale.Sim”. Multiscale.Sim has been embedded in the ANSYS Workbench GUI using the ANSYS Customization Toolkit (ACT) techniques, making it very easy to use and allowing it to offer leading high-performance productivity for ANSYS Workbench users. The Multiscale.Sim tool can help engineers to resolve challenges around materials modeling and characterization. Using the two functions of homogenization and localization analyses (Figure 1) makes it possible to perform a multiscale analysis of the inhomogeneous material microstructure of a composite material, such as fiber-reinforced plastic or metal, honeycomb, filler dispersion, lattice structures, and so on. Material property values are calculated by numerical material test of micro structure without material tests that were required conventionally. The results enable prediction of the macroscopic behaviour by the macro structural analysis. Further, it is possible to predict the microscopic behaviour by going back to the micro structure analysis again.

Multiscale.Sim is a product of Cybernet Systems Co.

CASE STUDY

New approach for accurate, robust morphing of CAD geometries

Facilitates bi-di transfer between analysis-testmanufacture and design

This technical article describes a new, automated approach to accurately and robustly morph CAD geometry based on results of analysis in order to facilitate the missing bi-directional transfer of these geometries between analysis/test/manufacture and design. Two industrial examples using this approach are also provided, in the morphing of a turbine blade deformation model and aero-elastic deformation of aerodynamic shapes for the NASA Common Research Model.
