    Custom Material - Glass Filled Plastic

    Kris Jones

      Hi all,

      I am trying to do a simulation on a plastic part that is made from the following material

      Domamid - A1-005-V50-B

      It is 50% Glass Fiber Filled - See data at bottom of question


      Can someone help me create a material that resembles this accurately in SolidWorks please.

      Is all the information I need there in the data sheet? Are some of the headings just a different title for the same value?


      I need the following information for my simulation - Can anyone else get this info for this material?

      Elastic Modulus(N/mm^2)

      Poisson's Ratio

      Shear Modulus (N/mm^2)

      Mass Density (kg/m^3)

      Tensile Strength (N/mm^2)

      Compressive Strength (N/mm^2)

      Yield Strength (N/mm^2)


      With this information would the simulation accurately simulate glass filled plastic?

      Any help would be much appreciated

      Thanks in advance
