Digimat-FE for Material Engineering & Effects of Defects
Lunch and Learns

This Lunch & Learn will illustrate how Digimat can be used to explore and understand the effect of some process, fabrication or usage induced defects in composites. A holistic investigation approach is proposed using the multiscale material modeling techniques – which are essential to handle the several scales involved in exploring the different consequences due to the presence of defects in the material. We will focus on defects at the microstructure such as porosities, inclusions, fiber cracking as well as defects at the mesostructure  level – examples include: non-uniform fiber/matrix distribution and delamination.
