Abaqus is the finite element analysis software of Dassault Systemes SIMULIA. The software suite delivers accurate, robust, high-performance solutions for challenging nonlinear problems, large-scale linear dynamics applications, and routine design simulations.
Linear and nonlinear analysis
Large deformations and contact simulations
Wide range of different analysis types
Scripting and GUI customization features
Wide range of nonlinear material possibilities
Abaqus/CAE enables users to leverage the complete range of Abaqus analysis functionality, such as acoustics, connectors, damage, fracture, and failure. Familiar Abaqus concepts such as steps, interactions, sections, and materials make the user interface highly intuitive.
Abaqus/Standard is the general-purpose finite element solver that employs an implicit integration scheme, Abaqus/Standard employs a solution technology ideal for static and low-speed dynamic events where highly accurate stress solutions are critically important.
Coupled pore fluid flow and stress
Acoustic and shock problems
Abaqus/Explicit is the general-purpose finite element program that employs explicit integration scheme to solve highly nonlinear systems with many complex contacts under transient loads.
Brief transient dynamic events
Severely nonlinear behavior
Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian (CEL)
Quasi-static forming events
Smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH)
