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.

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

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Mar 11, 2021 10:41:46 AM

The “Introduction to Non-Linear Analysis Workshop” on the 19th of March 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.

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.

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.
