Swerea offers material modelling services for the material groups wherein we operate. Material optimisation is contingent on the requirements of different materials such as plastic or metal, expertise we have built up over a long period of time. We offer support services for your project or study within materials development.
The material models produced are verified through varied tests and trials before they are put into use. Verification can include mechanical testing or trials at testing stations owned by us or the customer. Material models are often used in different simulations as part of a development chain.
Swerea's collective resources for materials modelling are congregated in Swerea Virtual Lab.
Examples of the services offered include:
- Modelling of metallic materials in thermo-mechanical processes such as casting, sheet metal hardening or hot rolling.
- Materials modelling for the hardening, draping and compacting of composites.
- Residual stresses and deformations.
