Component Central

Integrate and run models or simulation applications directly within Isight

Basic Components

The following is a list of components available for all Isight package levels. These components are products of, and are offered under license from, Dassault Systèmes Simulia Corp. These components may be used or reproduced only in accordance with the terms of such license. SIMULIA makes no claim of ownership in the third party product with which these components interface. These third party products are NOT SIMULIA Programs and are NOT warranted or supported by SIMULIA, Dassault Systèmes SA or its subsidiaries.

Note that with the release of Isight/SEE 5.8 Isight runs only on 64-bit platforms. Third party products for which we create components may still require (or optionally allow) execution on 32-bit platforms. The user must create the cross-platform communication environment required execute 32-bit third party programs with Isight/SEE 5.8.

Isight 5.8 Design Gateway, Runtime Gateway, and Simflow packages

Abaqus

Exchange data with and execute Abaqus solvers or Abaqus/CAE

The Abaqus component allows Isight to exchange data with Abaqus and to control the execution of Abaqus analyses. The component scans either a model database (.cae) file or an input (.inp) file and generates a list of input parameters that can be modified by Isight. The input parameters can include loads, boundary conditions, and material and section properties as well as sketcher parameters, such as extrusion depth and chamfer radius. The component launches an Abaqus analysis and reads a set of output parameters from the resulting output database (.odb) file or data (.dat) file. Once configured, the Abaqus component can be used together with design drivers to perform parameter scans, design of experiments, Monte Carlo simulation, or optimization on Abaqus models.
