Method development

Method development generates new engineering methods to improve development time, efficiency and effectivity or enabling a method at all. The aim is often to create analysis and simulation tools to improve the prediction of product properties and behavior in future. Thus, time and cost intensive trial and error tests are avoided.

Software development

Software development is one focus of 4a engineering GmbH. Many problems can’t be solved by using a standard-program or only in an inefficient way. So, 4a engineering GmbH offers its customers on the one hand specific self-developed software solutions (VALIMAT®, FIBERMAP®, MICROMEC®, 4a graph) and on the other hand individually tailored software.

For the area of material characterization 4a engineering GmbH also develops new material models as well as the simulation of non-standard manufacturing processes.

Some examples are:

  • Usage of macros for pre- and postprocessing
  • Automatic generation of meshes with specific element sizes
  • Automatic evaluation of simulation results
  • Scripting: for automation of the complete simulation chain
  • Development of graphical interfaces
  • Development of the material model *MAT_4A_MICROMEC for LS-Dyna®

Some references for software development can be found in the "References" – section.
