This course provides an in-depth coverage of the Abaqus features which address adaptive remeshing for solution accuracy. Abaqus/CAE and Abaqus/Standard work together to adaptively remesh your model in response to user-specified criteria. These criteria include error indicator and mesh-size targets. Usage can be manual or fully automatic, providing options to control the way the adaptivity process is executed. This capability eliminates the mesh-related uncertainty associated with the analysis by using well-established methods for calculating solution error indicators, which in turn drive the remeshing process, ultimately providing a balance between solution accuracy and cost.

The course includes workshops and example problems to illustrate the techniques. The topics discussed include:

  • Overview and comparison of adaptivity techniques in Abaqus
  • Basics of adaptive remeshing
  • Error indicators and the associated output variables
  • Specification of adaptive remeshing rules
  • The adaptive remeshing process
  • Setting up an adaptive remeshing process
  • Issues/limitations
