How does concrete fragment?

Simulation high-speed processes with Autodyn
efficient – flexible – inexpensive

If high-speed processes in the time range below milliseconds needs to be studied experimentally, an enormous effort have been spent. An alternative is using explicit simulations. These allows high-speed processes to be calculated and made visible.

The advantages of this kind of simulations will be showed in this video by considering a concrete block dropping from a height of 10 m to a massive plate of steel. In the concrete block a steel bolt and a glass shard are included. In the explicit simulation the movement of both parts can showed by simply hiding the concrete block. Additionally, with these simulations damage of the parts can be revealed although they are not fragmented. This means the creation of cracks can be observed.

The explicit simulation needs a good hardware and know-how. You will find both with me.
