Join our Hands-on Workshop: Introduction to Finite Element Analysis for Rubbers with Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Apr 20, 2021 12:55:07 PM

The “Introduction to Finite Element Analysis for Rubbers” Workshop is a free event for anyone dealing with Rubbers, who has beginner or advanced experience in 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 can offer and find out how easy it is to perform a real world non-linear analysis on rubber materials or products. This event will be held this Friday the 23rd of April.

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.

Join our webinar: What is new in Abaqus 2021 - Overview

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Feb 22, 2021 10:31:59 AM

This month’s webinar will be used to give and overview of what is new in Abaqus/CAE 2021.

This will cover:
• New additions to Abaqus/CAE, including the odb splitter/reducer and additional functionality in the Solidworks Associative Interface.
• A summary of some of the developments that are supported through the keywords interface. These cover areas such as enhancements in contact, material modelling and multiple non-linear load cases.
• An overview of the installation process for Abaqus/CAE 2021.

The content will be suitable for any Abaqus user regardless of experience level.

Free fortran compiler on Windows for Abaqus material modeling

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Feb 19, 2021 3:55:21 PM

Abaqus has many built-in options but sometimes these do not suffice. You may want to include a material model that is not implemented, have a complex type of loading that is not available by default or even define your own element. Abaqus' user subroutine capabilities allow you to do this. User subroutines are written in Fortran and in order to use them, you need a Fortran compiler. In this blog I'll show how to install a freely available fortran compiler and link it to Abaqus. Thanks to Oliver Lundqvist working for Sweco in Finland for making me aware of this option, and to oaeres on https://community.intel.com/t5/Registration-Download-Licensing/How-to-link-ABAQUS-with-Intel-One-API-toolkits-to-run-FORTRAN/td-p/1244548/page/2 who provided this solution (especially the last workaround).

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.
