Defining new material in AFDEX

Recommended Posts

Hello Vivian,


Yes. It is possible to create a new material and use it for your simulation if you have the material properties. You would be needing the material module “AFDEX-MAT” for doing this. This module can be executed from the installation folder.

In terms of input data, for defining a material, you should be having the plastic deformation information. This can be load vs. elongation data, engineering stress vs. engineering strain data or true stress vs. true strain data.

You would also be asked to enter the diameter and gauge length of the specimen that you had used during the tensile/compression test.

If this information is not available, you should be choosing the "Hollomon model" to define the material. But this topic is a separate post in itself.:) 

I hope I have answered your question.


Cheers from AFDEX Support Team !
