UNMATCHED CHEMICAL EXPOSURE & EMISSION ANALYSIS

CheFEM 3
CheFEM 3 combines chemical-polymer Equation of States (EoS's) with 8-node Finite Element Mechanics (FEM) to quantify chemical exposure effects on polymers and their composites. The calibrated system has a temperature range of 1 Kelvin (-272 °C) to thermoplast melting/thermoset decomposition zone and a pressure range of 0 to ≥ 2500 bar.
