FIBERMAP™ is a software that allows the transfer of the fiber orientation (and also other results like temperatures, pressures or transient results) from a rheological simulation (Autodesk Moldflow®, Moldex3D®, CadMould®) to a structural simulation (LS-Dyna®, Simulia Abaqus®, PamCrash®).
In an injection molded part typical there are regions that are similar to either a plate or highly oriented (uni-directional) area. These regions differ mainly in the fiber distribution over the thickness of the part.
The resulting fiber orientation in a part means a multitude of local anisotropies that has to be considered in the structural simulation. Only then more accurate simulation results closer to reality are achieved.
By default, the coordinate systems of the rheological and structural simulation and so the parts are oriented different in space. Therefore, the parts have to be superposed correctly to guarantee a proper transfer of the fiber orientation. FIBERMAP™ enables this by an automatic fit as well as by entering coordinates of reference points. Structural meshes from LS-Dyna®, Simulia Abaqus® and Nastran are supported at the moment.
To simplify the process FIBERMAP™ contains a workflow, so that the user gets the result within some clicks.
