SIMIF 2022 Series | Electromagnetic Simulation Event | 8th June | Online

Posted by Johan Kölfors on May 19, 2022 10:58:36 AM

New for 2022!
The Simulation Innovation Forum (SIMIF) is evolving into a series of online bite sized advanced simulation events. In the opening session the focus will be on the benefits and possibilities of Electromagnetic (EM) simulation.

On the 8th June 2022, get a hands-on overview how to simulate EMC behaviour of a PCB from start to finish in our live workshop. You will see how the PCB layout is imported from Altium/Cadance/Zuken into the 3D simulation tool CST and investigated for radiated emissions.

Abaqus Credits, a More Flexible License Solution

Posted by Björn Lundin on May 5, 2022 12:00:19 PM

Up until the last few years, Abaqus ran exclusively as a standalone product licensed with tokens (analysis, portfolio or extended). The number of tokens required is dependent on the task you need to perform, and the number of cores you require to solve it.

These token licenses are usually leased for a year (but quarterly licenses are available). With this licensing scheme, tokens are used most effectively if there’s a constant simulation load throughout the year.

So, what happens if there is a sudden need for additional solving capacity over a brief time period? Adding tokens for a year (or 3 months) might not be the best option any more.

Customizing your Abaqus 2022 environment with Python

Posted by Ebbe Smith on Apr 25, 2022 4:12:49 PM

Abaqus/CAE is integrated with Python 2.7, settings and commands are read through python-based environment files at start-up and commands are streamed to replay files along the session. This produces powerful opportunities to form the CAE environment into a specialized package to accelerate day-to-day tasks. Instead of painting a flowery picture I’d rather jump in and demonstrate selected techniques that enables you to customize the user interface to your will.

I often work on organically shaped CAD data and often find the default geometrical refinement setting too low – this does sadly not exist in the session.default* objects so we need to apply some creative approaches.

The Human Connector

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Mar 24, 2022 3:11:55 PM

This is my last blog here and I want to take this opportunity to not talk about Abaqus or other technical stuff for once, but instead focus on something that is even more important to me: human connections.

Two Ways to Get Geometry From an Orphan Mesh in Abaqus

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Feb 15, 2022 4:06:20 PM

Sometimes you have a mesh in Abaqus, and you don’t have the corresponding geometry. Abaqus offers tools to create geometry based on a mesh. Here I will discuss two options: using the mesh-to-geometry plug-in and using the built-in tools. I’ll explain the difference and when to choose which option.

Why it is good to understand what your FE solver is doing (and how you can become more knowledgeable as well!)

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Jan 31, 2022 2:21:37 PM

While doing support we get all kinds of questions. I want to share one with you in this blog, because it was insightful for me, and I hope it will be insightful for others as well.
