Dynamic Material Characterization

Studying and evaluating precisely the influence of high strain rate on materials is what we call dynamic material characterization.

Dynamic tensile or compression tests, cylinder expansion or plate impacts are few examples of experiments we perform to determine all materials characterization in dynamic stress conditions.

Do you need to perform fast dynamics numerical simulation, we will determine the appropriate materials laws you need to implement for realistic results.

You would not hesitate to perform usual quasi static tensile tests on a sample to check your materials properties. Do the same for its dynamic properties and perform dynamic material characterization tests.

Benefits of Dynamic Material Characterization

For Design Optimization

Materials are highly sensitive to high strain-rates. Metals turn out to be twice more resistant and invisible damages can appear on composite materials. Working with the real properties of your materials let you optimize your design solutions from the very beginning.

Therefore you reach the expected result faster!

For People's Safety

Better knowledge of your materials can save lives. You can optimize your design and get the best of your materials’ properties for lighter and stronger products. Where people’s safety is not an option, reliable data are mandatory.

Let us help you to reach the highest safety standards.

For Realistic Numerical Simulation

Scientists know that realistic results in numerical simulation require reslistic input data. Performing dynamic material characterization tests will make you see numerical simulation with different eyes. It is because we can perform real experiments next to our numerical simulation department that we know which properties are to be investigated for you to obtain trustable and tangible results.

“Dynamic material characterization is the key to reliable design of products subjected to impact or crash. Well suited configurations and fine instrumentation allows reliable numerical simulation for safe solutions”
