CAETestBench is a process where we validate your simulation against a physical part that has been created and tested using a rigid protocol, which can be accurately replicated in your solver. With this, it is possible to probe the accuracy of the simulation to quantify its ability to replicate real-life simulations. The deformations range from simple tensile modes to more complex, multi-axial modes, impact, and failure.
Physically accurate simulation is a requirement for initiatives such as late-stage prototyping, additive manufacturing and digital twinning. Simulations use mathematical models to replicate physical reality. Verification and validation (V&V) is an important step for high fidelity simulation.
CAETestBench validations do not use real-life parts, but instead use carefully designed, standardized geometries in a controlled physical test that probes the accuracy of the simulation.
These validations are a valuable tool to measure solver accuracy prior to use in product applications. Confidence is gained that the simulation replicates real-life physical behavior.
CAETestBench validation provides a measure of simulation accuracy for the chosen element type and size, material models, and simulation parameters.
If you change your simulation parameters, element configuration, or material model, you can re-validate to assess the impact on your simulation.
