This course gives an overview of experimental characterization, material modeling, and numerical simulation of pressure sensitives adhesives systems at 3M. Suitable testing and characterization methods for pressure sensitives adhesives will be presented. Material model calibration and parameter identification techniques for continuum models, cohesive zone models, gasket models, and double-coated tape modeling will be covered. Finally, a typical bonding geometry will be discussed to underline the applicability of the proposed material models and numerical approaches with the help of workshops built by Ansys Workbench. Other Industry examples will be presented and briefly discussed.
- Completion of the Designing with 3M™ Tapes and Adhesives course is required.
Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge.
