How ArianeGroup improves simulation credibility with EikoTwin and DIC

By Team Eikosim | 27 September 2022

Simulation credibility is a key aspect of the Virtual Testing concept. As the European leader in space launchers, Ariane Group participates with EikoSim in multiple Research and Development projects, including a RAPID R&D project (“MUTATION”) funded by the Direction Générale de l’Armement. This project aims at developing an industrial platform for test-simulation dialogue to meet…

Mechanical regularization in EikoTwin DIC

By Team Eikosim | 19 May 2022

By Lucas Angénieux, Research engineer at EikoSim In EikoTwin DIC, the calculation of displacement fields is performed on the simulation mesh. However, as this mathematical problem is by nature ill-posed, there is a mechanical regularization parameter that allows the user to add mechanical conditions to the field measurements. Contrary to most digital image correlation software, at…

Digital image correlation for crack measurement

By Team Eikosim | 29 April 2022

In the context of crack propagation tests on composite material, EikoTwin image correlation solutions were used to meet a customer need. A post-processing script, exploiting the measurement data from EikoTwin DIC, was developed by EikoSim to bring satisfaction to the customer with a tailor-made solution. This work is part of Paul Nicolino’s engineering internship at…

Digital image correlation for automotive structures

By Team Eikosim | 8 October 2021

By Floriane Soulas, R&D Engineer at EikoSim Context In the context of monitoring large-scale production automotive parts, many parts are subjected to repeated tests to ensure their integrity once they are put into service. Thus, the test that we address in this paper is dedicated to the “gust of wind” tests of an opening structure (see…

Thermal Plugins EikoTwin

Thermal plugins from the EikoTwin suite

By Team Eikosim | 15 September 2021

By Clara Minguet, Research engineer at EikoSim In order to meet the specific needs of customers and to extend the use of the EikoTwin software suite to other fields of activity, EikoSim has developed two new optional plugins: the DIC and DT thermal plugins. As their names suggest, DIC thermal plugin can be used in…

Technical functionality: selection of the measurement mesh

By Team Eikosim | 10 February 2021

By Clara Minguet and Lucas Angénieux, Research engineers at EikoSim On EikoTwin DIC, the measurements are directly expressed on the simulation mesh. In order to choose which areas of interest for the test are visible to the camera(s), the so-called measurement mesh must first be selected. Indeed, this mesh will be the one where the…
