Simulation and Validation (CAE)

Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) with Real Measuring Data

Simulations serve to compute and visualize the mold filling, sprue, holding pressure, temperature control and filling time of the cast part. The purpose is to prevent errors and to optimize the use of materials, the cycle time and the machine size by predicting the process parameters and material behavior using the ARAMIS system during materials testing. The real component geometry can be measured with the ATOS system and numerically compared with simulated data to optimize and validate the simulation model.

Applications

  • Processing of mesh simulation data
  • Mesh processing (refining, hole filling, repair, etc.)
  • Comparison of simulated and real components
  • Validation of casting simulations

Benefits

Real measuring data supports the choice of materials, the assessment of tools and the optimization of process parameters. The validation of FEM simulations serves for knowledge building and guarantees an increased reliability of numerical simulations. The trend analysis based on simulated parameters ensures reliability when making decisions regarding the further process by finding the best mesh.
