Contact in Abaqus/Standard and Other Convergence Issues

Course Objective

This 3-day course provides an in-depth discussion on solving non-linear problems in Abaqus/Standard with an emphasis on convergence-related issues for contact, complicated material models, and geometrically unstable behavior.

Using both workshops and practical examples in the lectures, you will learn:

  • How nonlinear problems are solved in Abaqus
  • How to use general contact and contact pairs to model large sliding between deformable bodies
  • How to model frictional contact
  • How to avoid over-constraining the model
  • How to identify modeling errors that cause models to experience convergence difficulties
  • How to resolve over-closures in interference fit problems

(This course is a combination of two existing 2-day courses offered by SIMULIA, (i) Obtaining a Converged Solution with Abaqus, and (ii) Modeling Contact with Abaqus/Standard).
