Post-Processing with Abaqus/CAE: First Results

Abaqus/CAE provides several tools for Post Processing. Among these, there are several controls for displaying different variables, plotting their contours in different ways, controlling the maximum and minimum limits within the results, and plotting graphs that can show the evolution of…

Analysis for Engineers: Fluid Validation in 3DEXPERIENCE (Part 1 of 2)

Hard core and pure Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) still remains one of the most complex fields within engineering. Yet, it is incredibly valuable, especially in a world where optimisation is becoming more necessary, not only for cost reduction but to make…

Installing Abaqus Subroutines

Arguably one of the most difficult steps in using User Subroutines in Abaqus is installing them correctly, and getting them to work! To help you overcome this first obstacle, we have produced a guide to walk you through the process.

Creating a new part in Abaqus/CAE

The most basic of operations can be intimidating to perform when you are a new user of a particular application, and one as established as SIMULIA Abaqus/CAE is no different! Creating a new part in Abaqus/CAE is easy, and the…

Using General Contact in Abaqus/CAE

Contact is essentially the definition of parts interacting with one another and/or itself. Abaqus/Standard & Abaqus/Explicit both use General contact and/or Contact pairs for defining contact.

Design Validation using CATIA Finite Element Analysis

CATIA V5 offers highly interactive finite element analysis capabilities for validating design.

Applying Boundary Conditions in Abaqus/CAE

It is possible to create boundary conditions in Abaqus/CAE and control how they take effect through different steps where we may be applying different load cases to a model.

Virtualisation of FLEXnet Licence Servers for SIMULIA

Many people ask if a License server can be hosted on a virtual machine (VM), known as virtualisation. Although Dassault Systemes do not encourage it, it is possible. Unfortunately for most, it will not fit requirements due to not all…

Make 2D & 3D Welding Simulation Easier using the Abaqus Welding Interface

Welding simulations are complex, requiring accurate representation of geometry, multiple weld passes, non-linear temperature dependent material properties, thermal and structural boundary conditions, and more. To capture all of these details, significant user effort is required.

Extended Token Licensing within Abaqus 6.14

The new version of Abaqus 6.14 now supports the following products with Extended Token Licencing: Finite element analysis (Abaqus) Topology and shape optimisation (Tosca Structure) Fluid channel topology optimisation (Tosca Fluid) Durability and fatigue evaluation (fe-safe) Design-of-Experiments, parameter optimisation, and…
