Properties for Engineering Design
An integral part of the design community
Understanding material behavior is fundamental to the design of new products, especially when using materials such as plastics, rubber, foams, composites, ceramics, paper, fabrics. DatapointLabs provides you with accurate characterizations to help you achieve your goals
TestPaks®unleash the power of your CAE programs
Structural analysis (FEA), injection-mold analysis, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and other CAE programs rely on precise representations of material behavior. At DatapointLabs, we have streamlined the art of material modeling for CAE into an efficient process that consistently delivers accurate results. We have developed TestPaks® for your programs in cooperation with leading software vendors. Rely on our expertise to help you select the right material models, generate the right data and get it into your programs, seamlessly.
Database properties may not be right for you
Properties in material databases are “stylized” data; properties generated under very specific laboratory conditions. They have been generated for purposes of comparison, but not necessarily for design. The properties of materials can vary significantly with factors such as temperature, rate, molding conditions, pre-cycling and environmental exposure. It is impossible to find a database that quantifies all these effects. TestPaks® allow you to develop material models that describe the behavior of your material under the specific conditions it will see in your application.
testpaks.com, a web site hosted by DatapointLabs is focused on the material modeling needs of the CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering) community. The site contains discussions, articles and case-studies, plus an easy way to select and buy TestPaks® - material testing for the calibration of material models for your simulation.
