BASF’s Ultrasim Simulation for Elastomers

Sepotember 21 2020

BASF expands the application range of its simulation tool Ultrasim. The CAE tool also calculates component concepts based on elastomers, especially Elastollan, BASF’s thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). The simulation covers the entire process chain from initial processing to the mechanical properties of the final product. Among the special features of the simulation with Ultrasim are options to simulate both the initial load and cyclic loads of a component. The calculation of component concepts based on elastomers with Ultrasim is now available.

The property profile of elastomers typically includes stress softening (Mullins effect) under cyclic loading. For reliable simulation results, the consideration of this material behavior is indispensable. Ultrasim allows the precise description of stress softening during a cyclic course of loading. The simulation with Ultrasim is now available for several Elastollan grades. Further grades are currently in the characterization process.
