Sound FEA relies on a trustworthy model. That is why Caelynx has always made it a priority to verify our methodologies against physical testing. We put a lot of resources into developing the skills necessary to produce models and materials that behave realistically, because they establish an accurate foundation, which makes for far more valuable CAE results.
Complex materials can be tricky for FEA, especially under extreme loading or environmental conditions or in composites. Clever modeling, sound data interpretation, and user subroutines can be used to reproduce nonlinear and situationally dependent behavior, like failure and degradation, complex layering, variable properties, etc.
Many of our projects, especially those involving nonlinear dynamics, start with a physical test video. With the appropriate material properties, assembly connections and constraints, and an intelligent approach to model simplification, true-to-life simulation behavior is very achievable. From there, new design and analysis can be pursued with confidence.
