Matereality®-UGS NX Nastran Interface Opens MMPDS-02 Material Database to Aerospace CAE
Ithaca, NY – July 19, 2007
Matereality, L.L.C., provider of industrial strength IT infrastructure for secure, global materials information storage and exchange has cooperated with UGS PLM Software, a division of Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, to develop an interface for importing material properties from Matereality® into UGS NX™ Nastran software. Matereality has also released "MIRO for Nastran", a search wizard that extracts relevant Nastran-ready material data from its databases.
"The primary impetus for the creation of this interface was to position the massive MMPDS-02 Properties for Aerospace/Design database for use by the Nastran community. Both Nastran and MMPDS-02 are used heavily by the aerospace community. Coupling Matereality with UGS PLM Software’s NX Nastran will ensure proper representation of materials in aerospace CAE" say Hubert Lobo, Matereality President.
MMPDS-02 is recognized as the most reliable source for verified design allowables needed for metallic materials, fasteners, and joints used in the design and maintenance of aircraft, missiles, and space vehicles. In addition to MMPDS-02, Matereality contains the largest repository of CAE-suitable data on plastics, metals, rubber, foam and composites, including stress-strain curves; rate-dependent data; tensile, compressive, creep and fatigue data, plus the NIST lead-free solder database for the electronics industry. All data can be viewed using cutting edge visualization tools, subjected to instant unit conversions and CAE/FEA export capabilities.
In addition to offering individuals access to public data, enterprises can use Matereality's Material Data Server to warehouse proprietary properties of all their materials and deploy it to CAD/CAE/PLM. Data used in a product or PLM can be easily traced to its pedigreed source on Matereality.
According to a statement from UGS PLM Software, today’s announcement enhances access to relevant material data for users of UGS PLM Software’s NX Nastran. The use of Matereality to store materials information as part of an enterprise IT system, will lead to more readily available and accurate material data for simulations.
