Service: Material Model Requirements Management and Test Design

A crucial issue for the development of models for complex materials is the consistent formulation of the functional requirements and the according specification of representative material tests. Both tasks are usually far from being trivial in the beginning of the material model development.

CoMModO provides an approach for evaluating, capturing and structuring the load patterns that occur in complex structures with the aid of new postprocessing algorithms that allow for an iterative acquisition of the functional requirements.

Hereby the applied loads and input parameters of the material models are continuously monitored and accompanying processes check if the material tests still represent the arising loads and functional requirements well enough. The coverage of new load conditions and input parameter values is the basis for a continuous adaption and improvement of the material models. WIth this approach, these models learn the desired material behaviour coping with the growing requirements and new load conditions.
