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.

Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis - Join our Abaqus Workshop - 29 Mar 2019

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Mar 13, 2019 2:01:54 PM

The “Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis Workshop” on the 29th of Mar, 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.

Geometry Operations in Abaqus FEA software

Posted by Nikolaos Mavrodontis on Mar 5, 2019 9:51:00 AM

In this blog post, we will be discussing about geometry operations on 3d models, that have been imported in Abaqus as a neutral geometry format, or via the Associative Interface (if you are interested more about the AI, have a look at an earlier blogpost). We will be showing the different tools available in order to detect geometry issues in the imported model (Geometry diagnostics tool, accessible via the Query tool) as well as fix geometry issues from within Abaqus (Geometry Edit toolset, accessible through the Part module in Abaqus).

Units in Abaqus

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Feb 25, 2019 10:16:00 AM

In this blog, I want to discuss units in Abaqus. On one hand, I can be short on it: we can choose what we like, as long as it is consistent. On the other hand, this is a common source of mistakes. Therefore I want to go into a bit more detail.

Join our online webinar: Abaqus Geometry Import

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Feb 15, 2019 3:49:47 PM

The next presentation in the monthly Webinar series will focus on importing geometry into Abaqus/CAE. 

In current practice many Finite Element Analysis begin with geometry imported from CAD.  Whilst the reliability of CAD import has improved over the years, interoperability is not perfect and users frequently encounter warning and error messages during the import process.

Join our online webinar: Licensing, Installation & New Features of Abaqus 2019

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jan 28, 2019 8:56:14 PM

New year means new Abaqus release! It also means new capabilities which can drive your simulations are available to you. This month's webinar will cover and summarise all of the fundamental changes in Abaqus/CAE, material models, contact definitions and available solvers.

Optimizing beam radii in a truss using Tosca Sizing

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Jan 22, 2019 8:59:00 AM

Tosca is used for non-parametric optimization. It has several different flavors; it can be used to determine:

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.
