One Ring to Rule Them All: Managing Simulation Projects across Multiple Tools and Software into One Efficient Solution (Maria Sullivan, Adaptive Corporation)

Abstract: Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) world is barging into the life of simulation engineers and analysts promising higher efficiency. Countless software files and results, various tools leveraged for one project, sharing data among team members and data hand‐off among disciplines. How can PLM be leveraged to manage it effectively and efficiently? What is it really all about? The answer is different for each and every company. Rarely does one size fit all when it comes to selecting and managing simulation processes, tools, data, and results.

Dynamic Load Calculation and Correlation of Aluminum Truck Body for Knapheide Mfg Co. (Cynde Murphy, Adaptive Corporation)

Abstract: Analytical simulation is a powerful tool that can allow for understanding the dynamic behavior and fatigue life of any structure. However, one of the most challenging tasks involved in developing a simulation is developing accurate and realistic load cases that replicate field strains in the structure. Once a representative finite element model (FEM) of a structure is created, challenges arise when understanding and applying dynamic loads to the FEM so that correlation and validation with physical testing are accurate. One step further in complexity is being able to calculate dynamic stress profiles for the entire structure, and use those results for further investigation such as fatigue estimates.

Emerging Vehicle-Terrain Interaction Modeling & Simulation Techniques for High Fidelity Vehicle Dynamics (Darren Simoni, Adaptive Corporation)

Problem Statement: Vehicle dynamics simulations are heavily relied upon in commercial and military automotive industries for design assessment and predictions of performance, including mobility capabilities. Vehicle terrain interaction has challenged vehicle dynamics modeling and simulation tools and users since the adoption of simulation. Generating results on terrains which are comprised of soft, loose, or compacting soils have long been categorized as impossible. Due to these limitations, vehicle dynamics simulations of all vehicle types, including off‐road vehicles are limited on pavement or hard packed type surfaces.

Abaqus Knee Simulator | SIMULIA | Adaptive

New Video: Abaqus Knee Simulator – Accelerating the Design of Knee Implants

A new video now available from the Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA group demonstrates how the Abaqus Knee Simulator application can accelerate the advanced design of knee implants using finite element (FE) analysis and 3D modeling. The video is hosted by Cheryl Liu, Ph.D. of Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA and Paul Rullkoetter, Ph.D. of OrthoAnalysts.

What is the Abaqus Knee Simulator?

The Abaqus Knee Simulator is a validated computational modeling tool for performing basic to advanced knee implant analyses and simulations. This tool offers five fast and easy-to-setup workflows which reduce your reliance on time-consuming trials and expensive lab equipment, while still meeting regulatory requirements. The video includes an overview of the five workflows, validation of the model, and a demonstration of the software tool.

The Benefits of the Abaqus Knee Simulator versus Physical Simulation

The Knee Simulator is an application that works with Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA software. The application includes five pre-Abaqus Knee Simulator - Five Workflowsvalidated workflows knee implant design engineers can use to test their designs without the time-consuming process of creating physical models. The five workflows include; Contact Mechanics, Implant Constraint, TibioFemoral Constraint, Basic TKR Loading, and Wear Simulator.

Dr. Chiu explains how the Contact Mechanics workflow can take up to four hours to run. In contrast, the creation of a physical model to conduct the same test could take four weeks and cost approximately $14,000.

About Abaqus

Today, product simulation is often being performed by engineering groups using niche simulation tools from different vendors to simulate various design attributes. The use of multiple vendor software products creates inefficiencies and increases costs. SIMULIA delivers a scalable suite of unified analysis products that allow all users, regardless of their simulation expertise or domain focus, to collaborate and seamlessly share simulation data and approved methods without loss of information fidelity.

The Abaqus Unified FEA product suite offers powerful and complete solutions for both routine and sophisticated engineering problems covering a vast spectrum of industrial applications.
