Nonlinear Structural Materials Modeling and Fatigue Evaluation

Thursday, May 15th, 2014 - 2:00 p.m. EDTViscoplastic Creep in Soldier Joints

Certain structural phenomena require advanced modeling tools to capture material responses to loading.

The nonlinear behavior of many materials is experienced at both high and low strains. Additionally, structural components experience fatigue and break at loads below the static limit when subjected to repeated loading and unloading.

This webinar will show how to model different material behavior in COMSOL Multiphysics using the Nonlinear Structural Materials Module, the Geomechanics Module, and the Fatigue Module.

The webinar will include a demonstration and conclude with a Q&A session.
