3 Day Training: Introduction to Abaqus
Jan 16 @ 09:00 – Jan 18 @ 17:00

Introduction to Abaqus

4RealSim welcomes you to attend our introduction to Abaqus training.

Course Objective

This course is a comprehensive and unified introduction to the modeling and analysis capabilities of Abaqus. It teaches you how to solve linear and nonlinear problems, submit and monitor analysis jobs and view simulation results using the interactive interface of Abaqus.

The following products are covered by this seminar: Abaqus/CAE, Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit.

The course covers the following topics:
Linear and nonlinear structural analysis
Static, dynamic and heat transfer analysis
Material models: linear elasticity, hyperelasticity and metal plasticity.
Loads and constraints
Modeling contact
Selecting the appropriate elements for your problem
Feature-based modeling, parts and assemblies
Working with CAD geometry and imported meshes
Mesh generation techniques
Creating, submitting and monitoring analysis jobs
Viewing simulation results
Restarting an analysis

The course is divided into lectures, demonstrations and workshops.

The course’s workshops are integral to the training. They are designed to reinforce concepts presented during the lectures and demonstrations. They are intended to provide users with the experience of running and trouble-shooting actual Abaqus analyses.

Intended for

New Abaqus users who will primarily use Abaqus/CAE to create their models should attend this seminar. No previous knowledge of Abaqus is required, but some basic knowledge of finite elements and continuum mechanics is desirable. Also, some familiarity with interactive modeling is helpful but not required.

Nonlinear FEA for the Composite industry

4RealSim welcomes you to attend a free seminar Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis Abaqus for the composite industry.

Introduction

Composite materials have an important role in modern structural design. To effectively design and analyze such structures, and to ensure performance and reliability, companies are finding a need to evolve their analysis methods to include more fidelity in their models. Abaqus provides a wide range of innovative modeling and analysis techniques to address the unique challenges posed by composite materials.
This seminar will review the various capabilities within Abaqus for the modelling of composite materials. Various applications are shown during the event, toghether with demonstrations.

Intended for

  • New users who want to explore Abaqus for FEA engineering simulation with focus on composite materials as well as networking with other FEA users from the industry.
  • Abaqus users who want to develop their skill in particular how to deal with composite materials as well as networking with other FEA users from the industry.

Topics covered during the seminar

Linear and nonlinear static and dynamic analysis of composites
Composite pre- and post-processing
Draping of composites
Crack initiation and propagation, VCCT and XFEM
Damage modeling
Cohesive elements and contact for delamination

Introduction Abaqus Explicit
May 30 @ 09:00 – 13:00

Introduction to Abaqus/Explicit

4RealSim welcomes you to attend a free seminar Introduction to Abaqus/Explicit.

Introduction

The Abaqus Explicit solver is a complementary solver compared to the implicit solver of Abaqus. During this workshop we will introduce the explicit solver and how it can be used for high-speed (short duration) dynamics simulations [drop test and crash ], large nonlinear quasi-static analyses [deep drawing, blow molding, forming simulations], highly discontinuous postbuckling and collapse simulations and extreme deformations [bulk metal forming, fluid flow].

Intended for

  • New users who want to explore Abaqus/Explicit for FEA engineering simulations

Introduction Abaqus User Subroutines
Jun 27 @ 09:00 – 13:00

Introduction to Abaqus User Subroutines

4RealSim welcomes you to attend a free seminar Introduction to User Subroutines.

Introduction

The user subroutines in Abaqus allow the program to be customized for particular applications. For example, user subroutine UMAT in Abaqus/Standard and user subroutine VUMAT in Abaqus/Explicit allow constitutive models to be added to the program, while user subroutine UEL in Abaqus/Standard and VUEL in Abaqus/Explicit allow the creation of user-defined elements.

During this seminar, we will explain what is required to use user subroutines in combination with Abaqus, we will introduce the programming language, will work together on a user subroutine and compile the new generated code.

Intended for

  • Experienced users who want to start with Abaqus user subroutines.

Modeling elastomers with Abaqus

4RealSim welcomes you to attend a free seminar Modeling elastomers with Abaqus.

Introduction

Rubber and resilient foam are widely used for a variety of applications, such as seals and gaskets, shock mounts, vibration isolators and tires. The mechanical and chemical properties of these materials allow them to act as excellent seals against moisture, pressure and heat. They also have excellent energy absorption and dissipation capabilities.

This seminar provides a brief overview of finite deformations and the material models used for rubber and resilient foam.

Intended for

  • New users who want to explore Abaqus for elastomer simulations.
