Railway engineers will create a rendering of an assembly with the finite element software and define each material of interest. Material models are one of the main inputs of an FEA, and directly influence the accuracy of the user’s final FEA results.
Unlike many metals and other standard engineering materials that can be simply modeled as linear-elastic materials, adhesives exhibit more complex types of mechanical behaviors when exposed to different loading conditions and thus require advanced testing and material calibration methods. 3M is uniquely positioned to characterize adhesive materials and provide advanced material models in a format compatible with a variety of finite element modeling software.
