MATERIAL CHARACTERIZATION FOR NUMERICAL ANALYSIS
Neue Materialien Fürth GmbH
Mechanical properties and the associated material models are the fundamental basis for an efficient design of processes, tools and components using numerical methods. The quality of the input data determines the quality and effectiveness of a numerical analysis.
For the mechanical characterization of semi-finished products and components at different stress states, various testing machines and optical measuring systems are available. This includes static and cyclic loading and testing at high strain rates to assess the crash behavior. In addition, we analyze the mechanical properties at elevated temperatures and are able to simulate heat-treatment cycles using a thermal-mechanical testing machine.
In addition, the Neue Materialien Fürth GmbH develops new test setups, evaluation methods and material models for innovative lightweight construction materials in cooperation with the Institute of Manufacturing Technology of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg.
