Introduction to XFlow CFD - Join our XFlow Workshop - 30 August 2019

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jul 16, 2019 9:31:00 AM

Simuleon will give another unique workshop, called "Introduction to XFlow CFD".

Our classroom style workshop will be held in English language at our office location in 's-Hertogenbosch, the Netherlands. This is the ideal way to understand and try-out, what advanced CFD simulation, with SIMULIA XFlow CFD can offer.

Topics: XFlow CFD, Computational Fluid Dynamics, Flow Simulation, High fidelity CFD, lattice boltzmann

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.

Topics: Abaqus, Abaqus advanced contact, contact analysis

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

Join our online webinar: Coupled thermal-stress analysis using Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on May 27, 2019 4:18:15 PM

The next in the webinar series will cover sequential and fully coupled thermal-stress analyses using Abaqus. 

The three modes of heat transfer, conduction, convection and radiation will be covered, along with how these are defined in CAE.

Frequently a thermal analysis is coupled to a stress analysis in order to determine the impact of thermal loading on the structural behaviour.  If the structural behaviour will not influence the thermal behaviour, a sequential analysis approach can be adopted, but if the thermal behaviour is coupled to the structural behaviour, a fully coupled thermal/stress analysis is required.  This webinar will cover how both forms of analyses are performed.

Topics: Abaqus, thermal-stress, thermal-structural, conduction, convection, radiation

Join our "Introduction to Isight Training Course - 16 & 17 May

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Apr 30, 2019 9:30:18 AM

At the 16th & 17th of May 2019, Simuleon will hold a 2-day classroom training at our location in 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands. The training is called "Introduction to Isight Training Course"

Isight is a Process Integration and Design Optimization ( PIDO ) software framework, which enables various applications to be easily integrated. With Isight you can create flexible simulation process flows to automate the exploration of design alternatives and identification of optimal performance parameters.

This course comprehensively covers the Design and Runtime Gateways along with several fundamental components, exposing users to the ways in which a workflow can be built in Isight and the ways in which the design space can be explored.

Topics: introduction to Isight Training, automated workflows, design of experiments, monte carlo, six sigma

Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis - Join our Abaqus Workshop - 24 May 2019

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Apr 30, 2019 9:07:49 AM

The “Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis Workshop” on the 24th of May, 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: Metal inelasticity in Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Apr 24, 2019 3:39:01 PM

In this webinar we will look at some of the characteristics of metal’s inelastic behaviors under monotonic and cyclic loading and how these behaviors can be modelled in Abaqus with the use of inelasticity models. In specific, the bilinear elastic-plastic, kinematic and isotropic hardening plasticity models will be discussed.

Information about the modelling of damage will also be provided for metals experiencing a ductile type of failure.

Topics: DEM, Abaqus, CEL, SPH, meshless methods

Introduction to Optimization for Abaqus - Join our Tosca & Isight Workshop - 26 April 2019

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Apr 16, 2019 9:14:22 AM

The “Introduction to Optimization for Abaqus Workshop” is a free event for anyone who has some experience with Abaqus and would like to explore the possibilities of optimization. Both non-parametric topology optimization using Tosca and parametric optimization using Isight are discussed, focusing on the optimization of problems using the finite element code Abaqus.

Topics: Abaqus, isight, tosca

Join our online webinar: Meshless Methods in Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Mar 21, 2019 1:45:46 PM

In this webinar we will look at three of these modelling techniques; SPH (Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics), CEL (Coupled Eulerian Lagrangian) and DEM (Discrete Element Modelling).  For each technique the webinar will walk through how they are implemented in Abaqus and consider practical examples demonstrating when each technique is most appropriate. 

This capability is available without the need for extended tokens and therefore may be of interest to anyone already familiar with Abaqus.

Topics: DEM, Abaqus, CEL, SPH, meshless methods
