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.

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.

Join our hands-on workshop: From Testing to Finite Element Analysis for Rubbers with Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Sep 13, 2018 12:46:28 PM

 

On Friday the 26th or October, Simuleon and Elastomer Research Testing (ERT) are hosting the free hands-on workshop ‘From testing to Finite Element Analysis for Rubbers with Abaqus ’. In this unique co-hosted event Simuleon will present their solutions based on the SIMULIA portfolio and ERT will present their Rubber testing capabilities to gain material specifications for usage with SIMULIA Abaqus FEA.

Starting with a lecture session covering the essential concepts of advanced simulation for Rubbers, the course also gives the attendees the opportunity with our hands-on workshop, to model advanced phenomena such as non-linear elastic behaviour & material calibration, in-compressibility, element selection, shrink-fit & pressure penetration and other highly complex events with SIMULIA Abaqus.

Join our "Abaqus Buckling, Postbuckling and Collapse Analysis" Classroom Training - 16 & 17 August

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jul 30, 2018 4:22:11 PM

At the 16th & 17th of August 2018, Simuleon will hold a 2-day classroom training at our location in Bruchem, The Netherlands. The training is called "Abaqus Buckling, Postbuckling & Collapse Analysis Training".

Buckling and postbuckling behavior is critical to the success of certain designs. For example, crash worthiness of an automobile requires that particular vehicle components collapse in ways that maximize energy absorption. On the other hand, successful designs of imperfection-sensitive, thin-walled shell structures, ranging from beverage containers to large pressure vessels, must prevent unintentional buckling.

Join our online webinar: Civil Engineering with Abaqus FEA - Part 2

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jul 23, 2018 1:37:26 PM

In the previous webinar on civil engineering and Abaqus, we covered the basic topics in modelling buildings and infrastructures. First we introduced the principal material models used in this field, with a focus on the Concrete Damaged Plasticity model. Structural elements – in particular beam and shell elements – have been described in detail, presenting several special applications and the construction of the model of a steel framed building. Also, a detailed description of different techniques used to model reinforced-concrete were described. 


In this second part of the webinar we will focus on some specific applications. Common techniques to model pre and post tensioned tendons will be presented. Examples include a prestressed RC beam, a post-tensioned concrete slab and a post-tensioned reinforced concrete nuclear containment vessel.

Join our online webinar: Multi-scale Modelling with Abaqus FEA

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jun 26, 2018 8:22:22 AM

In this months upcoming webinar, we will look at the capabilities for Multi-Scale Modelling with Abaqus FEA and we will cover the techniques recently implemented in Abaqus for multi-scale modelling. It will take place on Friday the 29th June.

Two new methods are available in Abaqus to couple analyses performed at different scales: mean field homogenisation (MFH) and FE-based Representative Volume Element (RVE).

The objective is to predict the mechanical response of a structure using data from a smaller scale. These methods are particularly useful when studying complex materials or structures such as composite materials or lattice structures.
