All test data and also all simulation models are stored in a data base. So the access is guaranteed to be quick and easy.

Not only the tests performed in 4a impetus are stored but also other test results can easily be imported: tensile tests, shear tests, quasi-static bending tests, puncture tests from other machines and so on.

The test data input is clearly arranged: general information, test setup, test specimen data, evaluation. After performing a measurement the original test data is stored and remains unchanged. It can be evaluated or filtered anytime.

The same applies to the simulation models. They can easily be edited and a new simulation with certain changes can afterwards be run. So influences of various settings options (e.g. different solvers, number of integration points, …) can easily be made visible.
