Power of the SIMULIA Portfolio: fe-safe, Tosca, Isight, and Abaqus in Action
Through Extended Packaging, all Abaqus users now have access to more technology than ever. This course will illustrate the practical benefits and usage of fe-safe, Tosca, and Isight along with Abaqus to extend the attendee’s simulation skillset to include durability analysis and optimization techniques. The course will focus on industrial applications combining Abaqus, Tosca, fe-safe, and Isight to increase the value added through simulation and will provide compact introductions to: structural optimization with Tosca using Abaqus/CAE, fatigue analysis with fe-safe, and process automation and parametric optimization with Isight. The course will expand attendee’s simulation knowledge by teaching how to simulate fatigue behavior and likely failure modes. Participants will also learn how to apply topology, shape, and parametric optimization to boost quality, durability and performance while reducing development time.
MKS: Multibody Simulation using Simpack for Abaqus Users
Simpack is a general purpose Multibody Simulation (MBS) software product used for the dynamic analysis of any mechanical or mechatronic system. It enables engineers to generate and solve virtual 3D models in order to predict and visualize motion, coupling forces and stresses. This course will focus on providing an introduction to the technology in Simpack and to educate existing Abaqus and Simpack users as to possible applications in their company. Attendees will also discover how Simpack interoperates with Abaqus. This course is focused on the technology in, and usage of, Simpack for the traditional SIMULIA user. Attendees will come away from the course with a firm understanding of the technology and applicability of Simpack and the value of Multibody Simulation as an application area together with FEA.
Composites: Effective Modeling of Composite Materials with Abaqus
Composite materials are used in many industries, across a range of design applications, because of their high stiffness-to-weight ratios and the ability to tailor their response as needed. This course aims to introduce users to the capabilities in Abaqus enabling effective modeling of composite materials. The course covers the following topics: Using detailed modeling of the microscopic behavior to determine the behavior of composite materials, defining anisotropic elasticity with Hookean models for combining the fiber-matrix response, defining composite layups using Abaqus/CAE, achieving the correct material orientation of the layers of composite shells and solid elements, as well as recent enhancements in the technical capability. This course content is a subset of the standard Analysis of Composite Materials with Abaqus course.
