Abaqus hardware and licensing, standalone and via the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Jan 25, 2021 3:43:10 PM

Personally, I find solving finite element problems way more interesting than installing the software, ensuring the hardware works and worrying about licenses. Unfortunately, hardware and licenses are needed to do the more interesting stuff. Therefore I’ll say a bit more about that in this blog.

I’ll go into the traditional options with standalone Abaqus as well as the running an .inp file using the 3D experience platform on the cloud.

Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis - Join FREE Abaqus Workshop ONLINE

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jan 11, 2021 1:58:15 PM

The “Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis Workshop” on the 22th of January from 13:00 - 17:00 CET, is a free ONLINE event 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 webinar: Characterizing materials and calibrating material models in Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jan 11, 2021 1:51:59 PM

January’s webinar is entitled ‘Characterizing materials and calibrating material models in Abaqus’. It will be held on the 29th of January.

In this month’s webinar we will be looking at characterizing materials and calibrating material models in Abaqus. 
• The material calibration tool that allows you to import stress vs strain data into Abaqus to create elastic plastic materials
• Metal hardening models
• Elastomer characterization and behaviour
• How to define hyperelastic materials

Merry Christmas and the best wishes for the new year!

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Dec 17, 2020 12:51:50 PM

From Simuleon we wish you a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2021!

And at least I am hoping for some snow ;)

Here in the Netherlands we have the expression that something can 'snow under'. Figuratively, this indicates that it's forgotten, because something else is taking up all the attention. Typically, this isn't a good thing, but in light of the current pandemic, it may not be a bad thing if we can forget 2020, hence this simulation with 2020 numbers ;-).

Abaqus 2021 - What's new?

Posted by Nikolaos Mavrodontis on Dec 7, 2020 4:01:02 PM

Abaqus 2021 is out. In this blog post, we will be showing some of the enhancements, that we found interesting. Additionally most major enhancements will be highlighted, for this new Abaqus release. For a more in depth explanation of the new enhancements, you can take a look in the release notes, provided here.

The discussed enhancements, are included in versions up to Abaqus 2021 FD03(FP.CFA.2042), which has been released. More  enhancements are scheduled for later releases of Abaqus 2021x.

Simulating railway track hot rolling in Abaqus

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Nov 23, 2020 10:47:20 AM

In the hot rolling process, metal is heated and passed through one or more sets of rollers, to give it the desired cross-section for example. This process is used for the fabrication on railway tracks (Figure 1).

Analysis of a bolted composite joint with ply failure done in Abaqus

Posted by Nikolaos Mavrodontis on Nov 10, 2020 9:00:00 AM

In this blog post, we will be showing an analysis of a bolted joint. The joint comprises of two flat plates that are made of carbon fiber reinforced polymer material (CFRP). Both plates have the same 8 ply layup (symmetric), and have been modelled with stacked continuum shell elements. Ply failure modelling has been considered in terms of Hashin failure criterion damage initiation and fracture energy damage evolution.
