Join our webinar: Simulation of adhesives and adhesion in Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Oct 19, 2020 2:28:15 PM

October’s webinar is entitled ‘Simulation of adhesives and adhesion in Abaqus’. It will be held on the 30st of October.

Adhesives have become a common joining method in industry but present particular challenges to the simulation engineer. The webinar will give an overview of some common methods for predicting stress states, deformation and failure on adhesively bonded joints.

Introduction to Advanced Contact Analysis - Join FREE Abaqus Workshop ONLINE

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Oct 13, 2020 12:47:52 PM

The "Introduction to Advanced Contact Workshop" on the 30st or October is a free ONLINE event for anyone dealing with complex contact conditions, 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 with robust contactsolver in SIMULIA Abaqus Software can offer, and find out how easy it is to perform a real world non-linear analysis.

Join our Online Training: Obtaining a Converged solution with Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Oct 5, 2020 2:55:51 PM

Over 5 weeks in a 2 hour session each week, from the 20st of October till 17th of November, Simuleon will hold an Online Training with live broadcasting. The training is called "Obtaining a converged solution with Abaqus"".

This course provides a useful insight in the theoretic backgrond of how non-linear problems are solved. You will learn how to develop models that will converge. You will learn to identify modeling errors that cause models to experience convergence difficulties. After this training you will be able to recognize when a problem is too difficult or too ill-posed to be solved effectively.

Join our webinar: Plugins and Python Scripting in Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Sep 21, 2020 8:45:00 AM

September’s webinar is entitled ‘Plug-ins and Python scripting in Abaqus’. It will be held on the 25th of September.

Scripting is the easiest way to automate all the repetitive tasks. There is number of reasons why someone would like to avoid doing everything manually. Number one of course is that doing things manually is boring. However, there are far more important reasons to create scripts. From an engineering point of view, the most important attribute of our work is quality and reliability. Scripts always perform tasks the same way and that gives users confidence that any mistake will not sneak into.

Join our webinar: Buckling, Postbuckling & collapse with Abaqus FEA

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jul 14, 2020 9:45:00 AM

July’s webinar will present the analysis types available in Abaqus, for evaluating the structural response under buckling, post buckling and collapse.

Buckling is the sudden collapse of a structural member under axial compressive loading. The importance of accurately predicting buckling loads during design is paramount, since these loads are on most occasions lower than the ultimate compressive loads of the particular member. The non-linear character of this failure type, imposes a modelling and convergence challenge.

Abaqus from a startup till today - A walk down memory lane

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on May 13, 2020 5:03:22 PM

Today I have came across a very inspiring video.

It contains a lecture of Dr. David Hibbitt, founder of the Abaqus software, held on 24th of may 2019 at MIT, department Civil and Environmental Engineering. The lecture was called; "ABAQUS and its market:  evolution of an engineering simulation software venture."

If you have an hour left during the day / evening, sit back, relax and watch this inspiring lecture, where Dr. David Hibbitt goes through the actual start-up phase of the Abaqus company until today.
