Digital twin of materials – Siemens enables implementation of materials engineering in digital workflow

Siemens’ acquisition of MultiMechanics integrates advanced modelling of failure and damage of 3D printed lattice structures and meta materials.

Through its acquisition of MultiMechanics, Siemens is expanding its ability to create a digital twin for its customers. The software developer’s True Multiscale technology supports structural computer-aided engineering for a broad range of materials, including polymers, metals, composites and ceramics. As a result, material failure can be virtually predicted, which enables the use of manufacturing technologies such as injection-molding and additive manufacturing. The digital twin of the material can account for manufacturing variability and imperfections, identify the root cause of material failure at microstructure level, and optimize this structure for best performance. 

Simcenter software will be able to virtually predict failure in advanced materials such as composites, at an unprecedented level of speed and accuracy.

“Customers will have the ability to fully exploit the potential of advanced materials to optimize weight and performance in an efficient way that is not possible with classical, test-based approaches,” explains Jan Leuridan, Senior Vice President for Simulation & Test Solutions at Siemens Digital Industries Software.
