This document provides information on new and enhanced functionality delivered in the Abaqus 2023 GA release as well as functionality added in the first four FD (Fix Pack) releases of Abaqus 2022. Please refer to the Abaqus Release Notes in the 2023 SIMULIA User Assistance...

The world is nonlinear: 8 benefits of using Abaqus Benefit 4: Multiphysics Abaqus supports various forms of multiphysics FE analysis, among which fully and sequentially coupled thermal stress analysis, electromagnetic, electrochemical, acoustic simulations or fluid structure simulations (FSI). As both Abaqus/Standard (implicit solver generally used for quasi-static...

4RealSim has a team with decades of experience in developing Python scripts. Contact sales@4realsim.com to ask for our help to automate tasks in Abaqus/CAE. Abaqus Python scripting Scripting in Abaqus is done with Pyhon and is a powerful way to replace manual tasks and thus helps reducing...

The world is nonlinear: 8 benefits of using Abaqus Benefit 3: Efficient Substructures When simulating large FE models, it is sometimes useful to work on substructures to reduce the computing time. A substructure is a a collection of elements from which the internal degrees of freedom have...

Bird strike simulation expert A misguided flock of birds can cripple a plane. New aircrafts are designed to increase the survivability of the different aerospace structures when colliding into birds. 4RealSim has decades of experience in bird strike simulations, both for civil and military applications. Contact...

The world is nonlinear: 8 benefits of using Abaqus Benefit 2: Contact Modeling In real-world applications, very complex contact scenarios can develop when large assemblies are considered. Abaqus is by far considered one of the best FEA codes at handling all forms of contact. Contact can be...

The world is nonlinear: 8 benefits of using Abaqus Benefit 1: Nonlinear Performance When Abaqus was released in 1978, its basic element formulations were implemented using fully nonlinear equations. Still today, this core foundation enables the developers of Abaqus to create much more realistic FEA aspects to...

The importance of FE mesh quality and mesh quality checks tools in Abaqus/CAE In this blog post, we will discuss why the FE mesh quality is of crucial importance and what measures and tools are available in Abaqus to check the quality of your FE mesh....
