Join our online webinar: Abaqus 2020 - whats new

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jan 27, 2020 12:38:26 PM

Abaqus 2020 is out. In this webinar we’ll go through many of the modifications and new features, so you can determine where you can benefit from this release.

Have you ever wanted to do an interference fit in Abaqus/Explicit, import SolidWorks sldprt or sldasm files, define contact properties based on the materials of the underlying surfaces or simulate additive manufacturing? This, and more, is possible with Abaqus 2020.

Not possible for you to follow our online webinar? Read one of these blogs here and here.

Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis - Free Abaqus Workshop - 31st Jan

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jan 13, 2020 5:01:14 PM

The “Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis Workshop” on the 31st 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.

Merry Christmas and a happy 2020!

This year we have used SIMULIA XFlow CFD to determine whether Santa could fly without his beloved reindeers. (just don't ask me to mention all their names)

In order to determine whether Santa could fly like superman, we have created a virtual windtunnel study and used some assumptions. We have tried many iterations, but the best angle of attack seemed to be 20 degrees in order to create the most amount of lift.

Join our online webinar: Meshing native geometry in Abaqus/CAE

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Nov 27, 2019 9:02:08 AM

This month’s webinar will cover meshing of native geometry in Abaqus. A short section on processing geometry to improve mesh quality will be followed by a discussion of the various meshing techniques available to the user. The webinar will conclude with a brief introduction to the tools available for working with non-native meshes in Abaqus.

Join our online webinar: SIMULIA Tosca Topology Optimization

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Oct 21, 2019 3:03:12 PM

In the past, the reliability of some products were assured by keeping the mass of those relatively high. When computers started being a tool available for all, engineers began using them to calculate what is the likelyhood of failure. With this approach, weight of products was reduced and theirs reliability increased (or at least kept at the same level).

Join our online webinar: Simulation in Oil & Gas industry using Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Sep 23, 2019 2:18:11 PM

Problem solving and simulation within the Oil and Gas industry use approaches that are generally familiar to other more mainstream mechanical engineers, but often require the use of specific, often codified, processes and tools.

This webinar will look at some of the tools that are available within Abaqus that allow an in-depth insight into the behaviour of systems in ways which conform to accepted standards in Oil & Gas industry. These include:

Join our online webinar: Advanced Contact using Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jul 9, 2019 8:51:00 AM

Sometimes you may wish to simulate a process where various parts interact with one another. In such cases it is often impossible to rely on predefined loads and boundary conditions since the exact points of contact are dependent on the solution.

Including contact in your simulation can be a more realistic way to represent loadings.

Abaqus provides a wide range of mechanical models and numerical methods for contact. We will begin this month's webinar with an overview of these capabilities, considering how to select the best options for a given problem.

Join our online webinar: Residual Stress and Springback using Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jun 25, 2019 8:45:10 AM

In this month’s webinar we will be covering residual stress and springback. We will look at their definition and implications on FEA, how to deal with springback efficiently in Abaqus and the transfer of residual stresses and deformed parts between Abaqus steps and solvers.

Often the forming of metallic parts involves large quasi-static deformations and multiple sources of non-linearity. Processes such as these are regularly analysed using Abaqus/Explicit. This has implications when the aim is to model the forming process and determine the final deformed shape of a component.

Topics: Abaqus, ringing, residual stress, springback, metal forming
