e-Xstream engineering S.A
e-Xstream engineering is a software and engineering services company 100% focused on the advanced micromechanical modeling of multi-phase materials. e-Xstream develops Digimat material modeling platform for the nonlinear multi-scale modeling of composite materials and structures. The multi-scale material modeling approach is based on state-of-the-art homogenization methods like incremental mean-field homogenization as well as detailed homogenization techniques using the finite element modeling of a representative volume element of the material microstructure. The Mean-Field homogenization approach for reinforced materials is interfaced to major injection molding, fiber drapage and structural analyses finite element software to perform nonlinear multiscale analyses. This strategy bridges the gap between process simulations and the final performance of the product as predicted by computer simulation. Key to this strategy is a deep understanding of the material microstructure and usage of effective material properties. e-Xstream engineering is an independent branch of MSC Software. MSC Software is one of the ten original software companies and the worldwide leader in multidiscipline simulation. Among others, MSC Software develops and maintains the MSC Marc and Nastran solvers for FeA. Academic institutions, researchers, and students employ MSC’s technology to expand individual knowledge as well as expand the horizon of simulation.
