The nonlinear Finite Element solver Abaqus

Whether you need to understand the detailed behavior of a complex assembly, refine concepts for a new design, understand the behavior of new materials, or simulate a discrete manufacturing process, Abaqus provides the most complete and flexible solution to get the job done. The software suite delivers accurate, robust, high-performance solutions for challenging nonlinear problems, large-scale linear dynamics applications, and routine design simulations. Its unmatched integration of implicit and explicit FEA capabilities enables you to use the results of one simulation directly in a subsequent analysis to capture the effects of prior history, such as manufacturing processes on product performance. User programmable features, scripting and GUI customization features allow proven methods to be captured and deployed to your enterprise, enabling more design alternatives to be analyzed in less time.

Abaqus takes advantage of the latest high-performance parallel computing environments, allowing you to include details in your models previously excluded due to computing limitations. This allows you to minimize assumptions while reducing turnaround time for high-fidelity results. The suite’s renowned capabilities are extended through complementary products, extensions, and interfaces to Alliance Partner products. Discover how you can leverage the world’s most complete and powerful suite of FEA software to explore the real-world behavior of your products and accelerate innovation.


The finite element solver helps our customers to increase their confidence in structural product behavior, to decrease the number of physical prototypes, to shorten time to market for their new products, to reduce their development costs and to explore new materials.
