Method and Program Product for Solid Mechanics Modeling Workbench and Dynamic Display (TF00017)



The invention is a method for modeling solids behavior using the following steps:  obtaining load and load path data to apply to the solids, inputting the data to a model selected from a variety of models stored in a model library, the selected model generating model output data, and displaying the model output data in a graphical format. The invention is an integrated framework and tool for users to explore the implications of different solids mechanics models and different load/load path data with output presented in a graphical format to aid understanding.
