Join Dassault Systèmes for the webinar Convergence and Contact in Abaqus/Standard on December 6.
Convergence of the nonlinear solution method in Abaqus/Standard is of interest to everyone who uses the code. Nonlinear simulations very often include contact. Convergence and contact are therefore closely connected. This eSeminar is an overview of the nonlinear solution method and a discussion of contact modeling in Abaqus/Standard.
Understand how Abaqus/Standard produces results for nonlinear models in general, and for models with contact in particular
Learn about the latest recommended contact methods
Learn more about the Newton-Raphson nonlinear solution method and contact in Abaqus/Standard
Enhance your ability to build robust nonlinear simulations
Who should attend the eSeminar?
Engineers and engineering managers who have a working knowledge of the code and interested to know more nonlinear solution method and contact in Abaqus/Standard are invited to attend.
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-validated 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.
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.
Register today for one of Adaptive’s comprehensive, 3-day training sessions. You’ll also get a hands-on opportunity to execute what you’ve learned during the class.
Adaptive is offering two classes this fall:
Intro to fe-safe & Verity Training in Hartland, WI Oct. 4-6
During this course you will learn how to set up and run fatigue analysis using fe-safe. The third day will be solely focused on using Verity for Weld Fatigue Analysis. There will be hands-on training and practical examples.
Need more convincing? Here are the top 5 reasons to attend:
Learn how to apply complex loading to your products to accurately predict fatigue life
Learn the details of weld fatigue modeling and analysis
Use strain data to calculate fatigue life from physical tests
Understand how to use fatigue results to identify critical loading and crack prediction
Fe-safe is compatible with many FEA tools, including Abaqus, Ansys, Natran, Creo and LS-Dyna
Python Scripting for Abaqus Class December 6-8th in Hoffman Estates, Illinois
In this course you will learn how to use Python with Abaqus and Abaqus/CAE to automate modeling, simulation, and post processing. Both beginner and advanced users of Abaqus will benefit from this class. In addition to the in-class exercises, you’ll have a half day to work on your own script or application.
Here are the Top 5 reasons you should attend this class:
Improve efficiency by using simple scripts to automate Abaqus/CAE pre and post-processing tasks
Extract data from results and automatically perform calculations/generate custom reports for quick decision making
Create custom GUIs for automated Finite Element Model generation and custom workflows
Automate parameter studies, DOEs and Variation Analysis to explore the design space of your simulation model
Learn to use Python as a powerful scripting language for many other applications
