How concrete shatters

Simulation of fast processes through autodyn
efficient – cost-effective – flexible

If very fast processes in the range of less than one millisecond have to be studied, the experimental effort is enormous. Another option is explicit simulation. This makes it easy to calculate and visualize fast processes.

The advantages of this particular simulation are illustrated in my video using the example of a concrete block hitting a massive steel plate from a height of 10 meters. A steel screw and a shard of glass are enclosed in the concrete block. Explicit simulation can be used to show what the movement of the two parts looks like by simply “hiding” the concrete. In addition, the simulation shows where the materials are damaged even if no crushing is visible, i.e. where cracks occur.

Explicit simulation requires good hardware and specific knowledge. You can find both with me.
