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.
Linear and non-linear, Coupled physics (structural acoustics, thermal-electrical, and more), electromagnetics and smoothed particle hydrodynamics.
Rubbers, thermo-plastics, powder metals, human tissue, soil, composites, and more.
Ability to model interactions between deformable bodies, rigid bodies, and self-contact.
Well-suited for high-speed dynamic events, such as consumer electronics drop testing, automotive crashworthiness, and ballistic impact.
Reducing analysis turnaround time enables the examination of multiple and more detailed design scenarios.
The comprehensive set of best-in-class visualization capabilities in Abaqus helps users interpret and communicate model data and analysis results.
Abaqus/Standard is ideal for static and low-speed dynamic events where highly accurate stress solutions are important. Within a single simulation, it is possible to analyse a model both in the time and frequency domain. Abaqus/Standard is supported within the Abaqus/CAE modelling environment for all common pre and post processing needs. The results at any point within an Abaqus/Standard run can be used as the starting conditions for continuation in Abaqus/Explicit. Similarly, an analysis that starts in Abaqus/Explicit can be continued in Abaqus/Standard.
Abaqus/Explicit is ideal for analyses where high-speed, non-linear, transient response dominates the solution. The ability of Abaqus/Explicit to effectively handle severely non-linear behaviour such as contact, makes it very attractive for the simulation of many quasi-static events, such as rolling of hot metal and slow crushing of energy absorbing devices. The results at any point within an Abaqus/Explicit run can be used as the starting conditions for continuation in Abaqus/Standard. Similarly, an analysis that starts in Abaqus/Standard can be continued in Abaqus/Explicit.
