Join our Online Training: 'Abaqus without CAE’

Posted by Johan Kölfors on Jul 15, 2021 1:39:40 PM

This online webinar is part of the Abaqus Continual Learning Program

Online Webinar Training: 'Abaqus without CAE’ | 30th July 2021 @ 11:30 - 12:00 CET

About the Webinar 

At the core of any analysis using Abaqus are the implicit and explicit solvers. To perform a simulation, the finite element model must be defined in a format the solvers can interpret, the solution must be executed and then the output can be interrogated. Abaqus/CAE is an environment in which all of these tasks can be performed within a convenient GUI. However, there are options and features of the solvers that can be accessed and performed outside of Abaqus/CAE which may enhance the efficiency, or improve the control, of the simulation workflow.

Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis - 16th July - Join FREE Abaqus Workshop ONLINE

Posted by Johan Kölfors on Jul 5, 2021 11:58:09 AM

Join the “Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis Workshop” on the 16th July from 13:00 - 17:00 CET, this free ONLINE event is suitable 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.

Online Webinar Training: Debugging | 25th June 2021 @ 11:30 - 12:00 CET

About the Webinar 

Unfortunately, a finite element model does not always behave as expected. In those cases, the analyst needs to determine what is going wrong and how this can be solved. The aim of this webinar is to help you do that.

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.

Simuleon welcomes Paul Bolcos as newest member to the team

Posted by Paul Bolcos on Mar 10, 2021 12:45:24 PM

Hi!

I am Simuleon’s newest member and in this blog I’d like to give a short introduction to myself.

I am originally from Romania, where I finished my Bachelor’s in Electronics and Telecommunications. Then I moved to cold, but very nice Finland, where I finished my master’s in Science and Bioengineering and, just recently, my PhD in Applied Physics. In total, I’ve lived in Finland for about 9 years. Me and my partner moved to Veldhoven in July last year and are currently exploring the Dutch nature and culture.

One thing we noticed is that both the Finns and the Dutch love ice-skating, though the former has a bit of a climate advantage when it comes to natural ice.
