Presentations from the Accurate FEA of Engineering Plastics Seminar Available for Download

October 20, 2014

CAE Associates partnered with DatapointLabs and Matweb for a complimentary educational seminar on October 14, 2014 that taught attendees how to accurately predict the structural behavior of plastic components. Better understanding of the true structural behavior of polymer materials allows engineers to perform more accurate simulations and produce truly predictive results, resulting in fewer prototypes and fewer warranty issues down the road.

  • Keynote speaker Hubert Lobo, SPE fellow, president of DatapointLabs, and an expert in polymer materials, discussed the distinct structural behavior of engineering plastics and the best approaches for conducting accurate FEA.
  • CAE Associates presented case studies and techniques for analysis of plastics using ANSYS and LS-DYNA FEA software.
  • Matweb and DatapointLabs demonstrated how to obtain the material properties that ensure accurate results.
