Company Description

DatapointLabs has provided expert material testing services for more than 20 years, with a unique focus on generating the physical properties data needed for product development, R&D, and computer simulation. The company tests more than 1700 materials annually in an ISO 17025 production environment.

Today, the affiliated brands of DatapointLabs Technical Center for Materials encompass material properties testing, generation of material parameters for CAE and FEA, and validation of simulation; as well as data infrastructures and software for materials information management, electronic lab notebooks, and a knowledge repository of information on materials in simulation.

TestPaks® for Abaqus allow users to order all the material testing needed for a specific application. Material properties data, CAE material files ready for use in Abaqus, and test reports are delivered digitally to each user’s Matereality database. Most TestPaks can be ordered for a five-day turnaround (expedited 48 hour service is also available), and include pre / post material modeling technical support.

  • DatapointLabs provides CAETestBench™ Validation for some Abaqus applications
  • Falling Dart Impact Validation for Abaqus Crash Models
  • Ribbed Plaque Flexural Validation for *Elastic *Plastic Model
  • Torsional Crank Validation of Additive Material Models in Abaqus

A CAETestBench validation quantifies the effect of the inputs to a simulation using carefully controlled physical tests that can be simulated with precision. The tests utilize standardized parts containing geometric features that probe the accuracy of the simulation. An objective measure of accuracy can be obtained by comparing experimental results against the simulation.

Matereality’s CAE Modeler for Abaqus automatically locates materials in the user’s Matereality database which have the property data required by the specified Abaqus material model, and converts the data into aCAE material file formatted for input to the Abaqus solver.

How it works:

  • Locates relevant materials for the selected model
  • Converts properties to model parameters; users can fine-tune the model
  • The CAE material file can be downloaded to use directly, or saved to the user’s CAE Materials library

To access the CAE Modeler integrated within the Abaqus environment, download and install the available Matereality for Abaqus plug-in.
