Tutorial Details: Abaqus Workshop

Date: Monday, October 27, 2008, 01:00 pm - 05:00 pm
Location: 575 Walter
Instructor(s): Deepak Goyal,

SIMULIA is the Dassault Systemes brand that delivers a scalable portfolio of Realistic Simulation solutions including Abaqus. The Abaqus Unified FEA product suite offers powerful and complete solutions for both routine and sophisticated engineering problems covering a vast spectrum of industrial applications. For example, in the automotive industry, engineering work groups are able to consider full vehicle loads, dynamic vibration, multibody systems, impact/crash, nonlinear static, thermal coupling, and acoustic-structural coupling using a common model data structure and integrated solver technology. Best-in-class companies are taking advantage of Abaqus Unified FEA to consolidate their processes and tools, reduce costs and inefficiencies, and gain a competitive advantage.

The workshop will demonstrate how to do FEA of simple problems using Abaqus. The workshop will give students hands-on experience. The following topics may be covered: building models using Abaqus CAE; native geometry, geometry import, assemblies; finite element analysis using beam elements, shell elements, 3D solid elements; dynamic analysis using Abaqus Explicit; post-processing using Abaqus Viewer; incorporating contact in your model (if time allows).

Prerequisites: Some familiarity with finite element methods
