Recently released by e-Xstream engineering (Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium), version 5.0.1 of the Digimat nonlinear, multiscale material and structure modeling platform for high-fidelity composites simulation reportedly supports the setup of 3-D analyses with Marc, MSC Nastran, Abaqus, Ansys and LS-Dyna, based on Moldflow, Moldex3D, Sigmasoft or Timon 3D processing results. All Digimat solution technologies are supported. Jobs can either be run and monitored on a local computer or packaged for a remote solution on a cluster. The new release offers a Matzenmiller-Lubliner-Taylor (MLT)-based model for the progressive failure of unidirectional composites materials. Failure progression includes individual damage-control functions and stabilization of failure progression for coupled analyses. SOL700 is now available in the Digimat-CAE/ Nastran interface, supporting MSC Nastran 2013.1. Also new, an enhanced Hybrid solution method that supports elastic, elastoplastic and elastoviscoplastic material models for woven fabric-reinforced polymers, including per-phase failure. Anisotropic thermal conductivity can be used in coupled analyses with Digimat-CAE/Abaqus. Thermomechanical analyses are available via the company's website.
