Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis - Join our Abaqus Workshop - 25 Jan 2019

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jan 14, 2019 12:23:31 PM

The “Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis Workshop” on the 25th of Jan, is a free event, held at our location in the Netherlands, for anyone who has some experience of simulation and FEA, but would like to look at extending the scope of the work they do. This workshop is an ideal way to understand what advanced simulation and SIMULIA Abaqus can offer, and find out how easy it actually is to perform a real world non-linear analysis.

Fatigue analysis with fe-safe

Posted by Nikolaos Mavrodontis on Jan 7, 2019 4:48:52 PM

In this post, we will be highlighting the main features of Simulia's fatigue prediction software, fe-safe. Fe safe performs both strain and stress based fatigue calculations, incorporating many different fatigue algorithms (uniaxial strain and stress based, biaxial strain and stress based, advanced thermomechanical fatigue, elastomer fatigue, fatigue of welds etc.). Last but not least, a fatigue calculation example will be shown. This concerns a notched plate under a cyclic fully reversing (tensile-compressive) load.

Approximating Sinterklaas’ staff using Isight

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Dec 3, 2018 10:10:17 PM

Isight is probably best known for its capabilities to do optimization. However, this is not the only thing Isight can do. Isight also includes the option to create an approximation, for example. With this, a mathematical equation is fitted to the actual behaviour of one or more components. This approximation can then be used in other Isight models, so it is not necessary to run the actual component(s) each time. This can save a lot of time. In this blog, I’ll show how to make an approximation in Isight and what results data is available.

Fully coupled thermal structural analysis with Abaqus

Posted by Nikolaos Mavrodontis on Oct 29, 2018 4:59:38 PM

In this post, we will be showing some of the capabilities of Abaqus for performing fully coupled thermal-structural analyses. In particular, an exemplary geometry of a mountain bike's perforated disc together with the breaking pads (included in the caliper-not modelled) will be used to show some of Abaqus' conjugate heat transfer and multiphysics capabilities.

Join our online webinar: Hyperelastics with Abaqus FEA

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Oct 22, 2018 10:37:10 AM

In this month’s webinar we will discuss how we can use Abaqus to accurately model hyperelasticity. This will take place on Friday 26th October.

Elastomers are used extensively within the world from cars to keyboards and shoes to ships. It is impossible to go about your day without interacting with a product that has a rubber component that is critical to its function.

However, for something so common it is surprisingly difficult to model accurately with FEA. We shall address this complexity and show how Abaqus can provide you with the tools needed to model your elastomeric components.
