Join our online webinar: Civil Engineering with Abaqus FEA - Part 2

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jul 23, 2018 1:37:26 PM

In the previous webinar on civil engineering and Abaqus, we covered the basic topics in modelling buildings and infrastructures. First we introduced the principal material models used in this field, with a focus on the Concrete Damaged Plasticity model. Structural elements – in particular beam and shell elements – have been described in detail, presenting several special applications and the construction of the model of a steel framed building. Also, a detailed description of different techniques used to model reinforced-concrete were described. 


In this second part of the webinar we will focus on some specific applications. Common techniques to model pre and post tensioned tendons will be presented. Examples include a prestressed RC beam, a post-tensioned concrete slab and a post-tensioned reinforced concrete nuclear containment vessel.

Join our online webinar: Multi-scale Modelling with Abaqus FEA

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jun 26, 2018 8:22:22 AM

In this months upcoming webinar, we will look at the capabilities for Multi-Scale Modelling with Abaqus FEA and we will cover the techniques recently implemented in Abaqus for multi-scale modelling. It will take place on Friday the 29th June.

Two new methods are available in Abaqus to couple analyses performed at different scales: mean field homogenisation (MFH) and FE-based Representative Volume Element (RVE).

The objective is to predict the mechanical response of a structure using data from a smaller scale. These methods are particularly useful when studying complex materials or structures such as composite materials or lattice structures.

Join our online webinar: Bolted Joints with Abaqus FEA

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Apr 20, 2018 1:31:30 PM

In April's upcoming webinar, we will look at the topics related to analysing and assessing Bolted Joints using Abaqus FEA.

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.

Join our online webinar: Civil Engineering with Abaqus FEA

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Feb 19, 2018 3:28:43 PM

In February's upcoming webinar, we will look at the Abaqus capabilities for modelling Civil Engineering.

Accurate structural analysis are needed to ensure the safety of buildings and infrastructures. The analysis can be static, for example to evaluate the strength of a RC structural connection or the displacements in a steel frame.

Dynamic and modal analysis are commonly used for seismic analysis, to predict the structural response to wind loading or to evaluate the vibrations induced by moving loads. Often the nonlinear behaviour must be considered, for example in case of large displacements or in case of damaged concrete.

Extreme loading scenarios must be analysed for particular structures: blast loading, progressive collapse analysis for tall buildings or impact simulations of containment structures. Abaqus, with its nonlinear analysis capabilities, wide range of material models and analysis procedures, provides a valid solution for all this kind of structural problems.

Join our hands-on workshop: Accurately predict non-linear behavior of Plastics & Rubbers with Finite Element Analysis

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Apr 28, 2016 10:00:00 AM

On May the 27th Simuleon and e-Xstream are hosting the free hands-on workshop ‘Accurately predict non-linear behavior of Plastics & Rubbers with Finite Element Analysis’. In this unique co-hosted event Simuleon will present their solutions based on the SIMULIA portfolio and e-Xstream will present their Digimat solutions particularly for usage with SIMULIA Abaqus.

Starting with a lecture session covering the essential concepts of advanced simulation for Plastics and Rubbers, the course also gives the attendees the opportunity with our hands-on workshop, to model advanced phenomena such as permanent deformations, stress-relaxation, creep, impacts and other highly complex events with SIMULIA Abaqus and e-Xstream Digimat solutions.
