Composites Simulation Suite
ESI has developed an entire suite of industry-oriented applications to realistically simulate a product’s behavior during testing, to fine tune the manufacturing processes in synergy with the desired product performance, and to evaluate the environment’s impact on product usage. ESI offers an integrated solution which simulates the design, evaluation, and manufacturing of plastics and composites parts.
“We have worked with ESI on flow simulation, forming simulation and impact modelling for many years, and consider their software to be at the leading edge of composites analysis. During that time we have developed materials characterization techniques to determine necessary input data, in particular reinforcement permeability for resin flow simulation. We are very pleased to be able to provide some of our data for other users – as well as providing useful data for analysis of composites manufacturing, we hope that this will promote further collaboration amongst the composites manufacturing community.”
