Provides understanding of product designs that maximize the safe operating life of structural components.


2 days

Course Objective:

Fracture and failure modeling allows for product designs that maximize the safe operating life of structural components. Abaqus offers many capabilities that enable fracture and failure modeling. This seminar provides a detailed discussion of these capabilities.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Material damage and failure models
  • Wear and erosion modeling
  • Simulating crack growth using cohesive connections
  • Simulating crack growth using VCCT
  • Simulating crack growth using XFEM
  • Simulating low-cycle fatigue crack growth
  • Proper modeling techniques for capturing crack-tip singularities in fracture mechanics problems
  • Proper modeling techniques for finite-strain (nonlinear) fracture mechanics problems
  • Using Abaqus/CAE to create meshes appropriate for fracture studies
  • Calculation of stress intensity factors and contour integrals around a crack tip

Who should attend?

This seminar is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus.
