Join our online webinar: Bolted Joints with Abaqus FEA

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Apr 20, 2018 1:31:30 PM

In April's upcoming webinar, we will look at the topics related to analysing and assessing Bolted Joints using Abaqus FEA.

Assessments of bolted joints can be performed for a number of reasons. Before starting any FE modelling of bolted joints it is important that the analyst considers the purpose of the analysis and plans it. A summary of typical aspects which should be considered during the planning will be covered.

Welding simulation using Abaqus - Part 1

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Apr 20, 2018 10:57:10 AM

Part 1: Manual weld definition

Welding is a process that joins materials by causing fusion: the base metal is melted and typically a filler material is added to form a pool of molten material. When simulating the welding process in order to assess the structural behavior of a welded joint, there are two main challenges when setting up the model:

  • Thermal and structural behavior needs to be coupled to each other
  • Material needs to be added during the welding process. This also changes the boundaries and thus the location of the boundary conditions.

Happy Easter!

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Mar 27, 2018 8:54:40 AM

It’s one of those special times of the year again: an extra day off, a good reason to eat (additional) chocolate, perhaps a visit to the family and … a chance to set up an analysis in a different manner than I normally would.

Coupled Thermal-Stress Analysis and Expansion Joints in Abaqus

Posted by Nikolaos Mavrodontis on Mar 6, 2018 9:46:24 AM

In this post we will be showing an exemplary analysis with Abaqus Standard. This analysis will incorporate a coupled thermal-stress problem of  a cylindrical shell (e.g. a pipe enclosing a high temperature fluid used in a factory). This pipe will be connected to a metallic expansion joint that will have the purpose of undertaking the thermal extension of the pipe. The purpose of the coupled analysis will be to demonstrate the mapping of result values via the predefined field option.

Using Abaqus for thermal analysis: steel vs silicone for baking brownies

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Feb 26, 2018 11:14:15 AM

While Abaqus is used most for mechanical analysis, there are other options as well. Thermal analysis is one of the possibilities. In this blog, I will show how to set up such a thermal analysis using Abaqus.
