FEA of Plastics

FEA of Plastics

FEA of Plastics

(OP)
I am doing a rough FEA on an ABS part and a nylon 6/6 part.  Any ideas on how to approximate Poissons and the shear modulus and strength?  The parts are being used a room temperature.

Thanks!

Try: www.matweb.com

They have lots of materials and material specs. They might have the specific one you are looking for or something close since there are is a seamingly endless number of suppliers and grades.

RE: FEA of Plastics

(OP)
Will, part of the problem is that very few (in fact no) spec sheets have these particular parameters as they are very temperature dependent and hence not compiled in standard specs.  I know the data exists somewhere but so far no dice.  Thanks for the lead though!  A great site, just too bad they don't have what I need.

White Paper - Addressing Tooling and Casting Requirements at the Design Stage
Several of the tooling and casting requirements of a part can be addressed at the design stage. If these requirements are not addressed at the design stage, lot of time is spent in design iteration when the design reaches the die caster. These design issues lead to increase in time and cost of production leading to delay in time to market and reduced profits for the organization. Download Now
White Paper - The Other Side of Design for Assembly
Assembly level constraints need to be satisfied before the design can move downstream. This white paper will go through the various assembly level issues, which need to be tackled by various organizations on a regular basis. Know more about DFMPro, a design for assembly software. Download Now
