Value Proposition

4a engineering GmbH offers a material modeling software solution including

VALIMAT™ – from test to material card for Abaqus, VALIMAT™ is the software solution for managing material tests and for the generation of material cards. The software automatically generates FE-Models for the relevant tests. The parameters for the material card are optimized by an automatic reverse engineering process. VALIMAT™ supports the most common FE-solvers and material cards. The functionality was proven by hundreds of projects. See more http://valimat.4a.at


As final result VALIMAT™ is able to deliver a validated material card for Abaqus.


FIBERMAP™– mapping the fiber orientation from injection molding to structural analysis, see more http://fibermap.4a.at


MICROMEC™- the virtual composite design, predicting thermoelastic composite properties, see more http://micromec.4a.at


IMPETUS™ efficient dynamic testing,
sets new standards in the area of dynamic material characterization. The 4a-inhouse- developed testing system for the characterization of materials, especially plastics, is based on a pendulum working without additional actuation power. The testing system can be operated on a common office desk located in the Research & Development department, key facts are:

  • applicable for plastics, composites, foams, aluminum, wood, …
  • impact velocities up to 4.4 mps (single pendulum) and 8 mps (double pendulum)
  • different test setups available: bending test, dynamic tensile test, puncture test, compression test (foams)
  • fast and flexible access to reliable material data
