Free Hands-on Workshop: Introduction to Composite Analysis with Abaqus - 18th June 2021

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jun 10, 2021 3:23:35 PM

This FREE online event on the 18th of June at 13:00 - 17:00, will teach you the secrets of progressive failure analysis of composites. The basics of composites simulation in Abaqus will be covered, as well as the advanced concepts of modelling material and interface degradation and failure. This workshop is an ideal way to understand what advanced simulation can offer and to understand how easy it is to perform a real world analysis. Starting with a lecture session covering the essential concepts of advanced composite simulation, the course also gives the attendees the opportunity to try advanced solutions such as debonding, failure, delamination and crack propagation.

Join our Online Training: Constraints Webinar

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on May 20, 2021 3:05:57 PM

This online webinar is part of the Abaqus Continual Learning Program

Online Webinar Training: Constraints | 28th May 2021 @ 11:30 - 12:00 CET

About the Webinar 

Most commonly, many of the FE Models which includes multiple parts are connected in some ways. The connection can either be a simple one like a fastened connection between two surfaces or may be a complicated one, where in order to have a desired level of accurate result, we may have to consider the relative kinematic effects in the FE Model. Therefore, an FE analyst must be well equipped to counter these challenges, by balancing the accuracy of the results and at same time ease the modelling efforts.

An overview of various constraints in Abaqus and its related issues will be presented in this Webinar. The aim is to help an FE analyst to counter such challenges in Abaqus modelling with high efficiency.

Join webinar: Response spectrum analysis in seismic events with Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Apr 26, 2021 2:01:29 PM

Response spectrum analysis is a valuable method to get an estimate of the peak linear response of a structure for a seismic event and at a low computational cost. This webinar presents the response spectrum method and the capabilities of performing this type of analysis in Abaqus.

Contents:

  • Introduction
  • Linear Dynamic Procedures
  • Eigenvalue analysis
  • Missing mass and residual modes
  • Damping
  • Boundary condition – input spectra
  • Modal summation
  • Directional summation
  • Output
  • Workflow in Abaqus

Join our webinar: Analysis of bolted joints in Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Mar 18, 2021 3:04:43 PM

Assessments of bolted joints can be performed for a number of reasons. Before starting any FE modelling of bolted joints it is important that the analyst considers the purpose of the analysis and plans it. A summary of typical aspects which should be considered during the planning will be covered.

The structural and thermal behaviour of bolted joints can be affected by a range of factors, including pretension, relaxation, friction and gasket properties. A discussion of factors which may be relevant will be given.
A number of FE modelling techniques can be used to analyse bolted joints. These will be described, along with their benefits and limitations.

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Feb 24, 2021 9:53:44 AM

In this blog we have given the honour to Per Landeback as a special guest writer for our blog. Per has written this great blog about a parametrical Equation to calculate Rolling Resistance of a car tire.

BIO - Per Landeback

Retired test and simulation engineer with vast experience of various vehicles as car, bus, truck and train. Studied at Chalmers University of Technology and performed Master Thesis at a Volvo Aero military engine. Held previous positions as employee/consultant at SAAB, Volvo Truck, Volvo Bus, Bombardier, Scania Truck and NEVS (National Electric Vehicle Sweden). Technical aeras within Comfort, Handling, Braking, Steering, Suspension, Engine mountings, Tires and General component calculation/simulation

"Thank you for the invitation to write about tire rolling resistance and especially about my developed Parametrical Rolling Resistance Equation. This is considered as a first publication and it very likely a paper will be a published. Therefore, general Copywrite rules apply."
