Introduction to Abaqus

Comprehensive and unified introduction to the modelling and analysis capabilities of Abaqus


Course objective

This course is addressed to new Abaqus users who will primarily use Abaqus/CAE to create their models. No previous knowledge of Abaqus is necessary, but some basic knowledge of finite elements, interactive modelling and continuum mechanics is desirable. The course language is German, optionally English.

In this course you will learn how to solve linear and nonlinear problems, submit and monitor analysis jobs and view simulation results using the interactive interface of Abaqus.

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
  • Modelling contact
  • Selecting the appropriate elements for your problem
  • Feature-based modelling, 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.
