Flexible Multibody Systems with Abaqus
The combination of mechanisms, rigid bodies, and finite elements in Abaqus makes a powerful simulation tool. The mechanism capability expands the ability of Abaqus to model connections among individual bodies in a variety of ways. Connections can be as simple as pins and rigid links or as complicated as nonlinear frictional joints with elasticity and failure. The goals of this course are to explore the variety of connection types available in Abaqus and to understand how to define connections that suit your needs.
The topics include:
Comparison of connectors and MPCs
Basic connector components
Assembled kinematic connections
Local relative displacements and rotations
Defining stops and locks
Defining connector friction
Actuating components of relative motion
Sensors and actuators
Output and postprocessing
Who Should Attend
This course is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus.
