MATFEM has developed the user-material MF GenYld + CrachFEM which may be coupled to a variety of commercial FE codes with explicit time integration. The model is designed to be modular and extensible. MF GenYld covers the elasto-plastic behaviour of metals and polymers with great flexibility in yield loci, flow rules and hardening. CrachFEM allows for the prediction of local necking for sheet metals and provides different fracture criteria for metals and polymers.

These programs are versatile and cannot be used effectively without suitable training. MATFEM offers introductory and advanced seminars focussing on modelling metals and polymer materials with MF GenYld + CrachFEM.

A new seminar introduces MF GenYld’s options to model continuous process chains. Advanced courses on the experimental derivation of material parameters for metals and polymers may be booked separately.

The seminar programme is available as PDF document.

We hope that the seminar programme suits your needs and we look forward to seeing you.
