Join our online webinar: Multiscale Modelling with Abaqus

Posted by Dolf Broekaart on Jun 17, 2020 1:44:47 PM

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.

In this webinar, we will present the two methods:
- MFH, that uses an analytical calculation to describe the relationship between the scales and
- FE-RVE, that uses a FE model of the microstructure.

We will also look at the micromechanics plug-in that facilitates the generation of FE-RVE models and calculates the homogenised properties of a material that can then be used at the macro scale.
