Total Materia HyperMesh Edition

Gain access to Total Materia data from within the HyperMesh environment. Search from over 320,000 materials and find data including mechanical and physical properties, stress strain data, and fatigue information for direct import in OptiStruct format into selected material cards. The second development phase will also include RADIOSS.

Modules and Products Not Currently Available Through the APA

Compliance: The Compliance module provides a single source of information about global regulations for materials and substances. Compliance includes international regulations, such as REACH and RoHS, national, from the US to Japan, China and Russia, as well as specialized regulations such as food industry, water and sanitation, all integrated and searchable with material properties information.

DataPLUS: DataPLUS is a supplementary module providing data subsets covering joints information, lubricants and coolants, material dimensions, tribology, and coatings for thousands of metallic and non-metallic materials.

Enviro: Enviro is an additional data module providing corrosion data, irradiation, weathering and aging information for thousands of metallic and non-metallic materials.

eXporter: Although export in the APA version can be done this is limited to Optistruct and RADIOSS. eXporter in the Total Materia version allows export of standard and advanced property data for metals and non-metals and in a range of other solver formats including Abaqus, ANSYS, ESI ProCAST, ESI Pam-Crash, FEMAP, KTM XLS, KTM XML, LS-DYNA, MSC Nastran, PTC Creo, RADIOSS, Siemens NX, SolidEdge, SolidWorks.

Integrator: New software for creating a private company database of material information, whether it be internal standards and regulations, test data or external data sources.

SmartComp: Metal identification by chemical composition obtained from spectrometer or other analytical sources for unknown materials. Useful for failure analysis, reverse engineering and a range of quality assessment activities.
