The WAImat Suite www.thorntontomasetti.com was developed to facilitate efficient, high-fidelity advanced material modeling for industrial applications. Resulting from a multi-year Office of Naval Research sponsored research into ductile metals fracture and thermo-mechanical response of metals under dynamic heating regimes, the constitutive damage models developed represent the state of the art in material damage modeling for large-scale shell structures. Comprised of three Abaqus-compatible software modules:
- WAIdam provides a reliable and efficient fracture-prediction constitutive model for large-scale shell structures whose modeling would be impractical using conventional approaches based on 3D continua
- WAIfire provides an advanced thermomechanical constitutive model to simulate the behavior of metallic structures exposed to fires, elevated temperatures or other dynamic thermo-mechanical loads.
- WAImc2 is a framework for calibrating advanced constitutive models to experimental test data, for organizing and data-basing material test and model data, and for performing Uncertainty Quantification, statistical analysis and goodness-of-fit analyses on the data.
