  • Polymer Modeling Training Classes 2016


    Veryst Engineering offers both online (web-based) and in-person (classroom-style) training classes covering the following topics: polymer mechanics, experimental testing, material model selection, and advanced finite element modeling techniques. The training classes are targeted to people with an interest in learning the state of the art in experimental testing and finite element modeling of parts made from plastics, rubbers, thermosets, or other types of polymers.

    All classes include theory review and hands-on exercises. The online (web-based) classes can be taken directly from your office, and are made interactive using online exercises and by participating by phone or headset with a microphone. The in-person (classroom-style) training classes are given in our offices in Needham, MA, USA.

    The classes are given by Dr. Jorgen Bergstrom.

    The following classes are offered in 2016:
    May 4 - 5, 2017 Finite Element Modeling of Solid Polymers (Part 1)

    This is the original training class that we have been giving for a number of years. It provides a great introduction to a large number of topics.
    Web-based
    Oct 12 - 12, 2017 Advanced Finite Element Modeling of Solid Polymers (Part 2)

    This class is an extension of the original Part 1 class, and covers in more depth the theory of different material models, and hands-on exercises designed to teach how to use the different models to solve real problems.
    Web-based
    Nov 2-3, 2017 High-Strain Rate Testing and Modeling of Solid Polymers

    Foams, elastomers, and other polymers are often exposed to high-strain rates and impact events. Due to the strain-rate dependence of these materials it is important to have accurate experimental data in order to select and calibrate a suitable material model. In this class we will demonstrate the use of split Hopkinson-bar tests and traditional uniaxial tests, and also provide hands-on exercises for how to use the experimental data to calibrate suitable material models. All experiments will be performed in the same lab as the class.
    In-person
    December 7-8, 2017 Failure Predictions of Rubbers and Thermoplastics using FEA

    Predicting failure of different polymers can be difficult due to material non-linearities and sensitivity to the load environment. In this class we will discuss different techniques that can be used to predict both brittle and ductile failure, including fatigue, of different types of polymers.
    Web-based
    We also give company-specific training classes. These classes can be targeted to the specific needs of a company, and are typically given in-person at the company location. Contact Dr. Jorgen Bergstrom for more info. ...
