material behaviour

water meter cover

Commissioned by material supplier Sabic we optimised a water meter cover. To enter new markets the cover must withstand higher burst pressure. A cost-effective solution which is implemented in the existing tool.

material behaviour
fiber orientation prediction

A custom material model, with anisotropic material behaviour enables accurate prediction of strength and failure. With this approach the time to failure was delayed to higher pressures.

"We value the long term relationship with Sabic. We work together like one team to provide realistic solutions "
