  • PolyUMod Material Models




    Veryst Engineering now offers the PolyUMod™ library of user-material models for finite element modeling of polymers and biomaterials. Commercial finite element codes lack the material models needed to accurately simulate many types of polymers. Veryst Engineering has developed a library of general purpose material models that cover virtually all polymer systems, including thermoplastics, thermosets, elastomers, foams, filled plastics, and biomaterials. Specific models also have been developed for particular formulations such as fluoropolymers and UHMWPE.

    Veryst's subroutines provide the FE user advanced material models as if they were built into the FE program. Engineers can perform very accurate FE simulations without becoming an expert in material model software development. A large part of the difficult development work has already been done! The Veryst user-material model library is available for all FE element programs that support external user-material subroutines. Most major FE programs have this capability, for example, Abaqus, ANSYS, LS-DYNA, and MSC.MARC.

    More information is available on the PolyUMod.com website.
    To Purchase:
    To purchase items in the PolyUMod Library, or if you need support in developing customized material subroutines for specific polymers on a contract basis, please send me a message.

    Failure Modeling
    Predicting failure and safety factors is an important part of many finite element studies. Each of the material models in the PolyUMod library can be combined with a failure model to facilitate these studies. The Parallel Network Model supports more than 17 different failure and damage models.

    Extracting Material Model Parameters
    The material model library includes the MCalibration™ parameter extraction software, which makes it easy to calibrate the material models based on available material data. The calibration software allows the user to analyze a set of experimental data files in order to determine the optimal model parameters.

    • PolyUMod - Select Material Models for Thermoplastics
      by Jorgen
      The PolyUMod library contains a number of material models that are suitable for thermoplastics. Each of these models provides unique and powerful predictions for different classes of thermoplastics. Each material model is available for both implicit and explicit FE simulations, and is suitable for large deformation analyses.
