Webinar Abstract

Materials manufactured from powder go through many processes such as granulation, mixing, compaction, and sintering. Although compaction is one of the most critical processes in determining material properties, there aren't many detailed analyses of this process. The deformation, density, and residual stress distribution of each particle are closely related to the properties of the final product. In many cases, the DEM approach performs calculations at a realistic analysis cost when handling a vast number of particles. However, it's impossible to observe changes in the heterogeneous microstructure in detail because this method treats particles as rigid bodies. Even though the DEM approach is a practical analysis method, it does not provide sufficient information to evaluate the performance of a molded product.

Therefore, CYBERNET has developed a workflow to conduct FEM analysis of the compaction process at a realistic computational cost by linking multiscale and DEM analysis. Real-scale analysis can be performed while explicitly taking microstructures into account. Equivalent material constants obtained from virtual material testing homogenize the microstructure according to the Drucker Prager constitutive law. Multiscale.Sim achieves the linkage between micro and macro scales. This presentation will show an example of a press powder process analysis realized by co-simulation of Ansys Rocky, Ansys LS-DYNA, and Multiscale.Sim.
