Substructures in Abaqus

Course Logistics

Take advantage of this live online course right from your desk. Each day of the class will begin with a lecture session. After the lecture, workshop sessions are conducted offline with technical support provided by hosting office via phone and email. Some hosting offices also allow for in-person attendance.


The size and complexity of designs that are analyzed and tested with Abaqus continues to grow. Substructuring allows you to break large problems into several smaller components.

In this seminar you will learn how to:

  • Maximize CPU savings when using substructures
  • Translate, rotate, and reflect substructures when using multiple copies
  • Build preloads into substructures
  • Plot results within substructures
  • Use substructures in dynamic simulations
  • Use substructures when the problem contains nonlinearities, such as contact
  • Use co-simulation techniques to include substructures in Abaqus/Explicit

This online course is a customized subset of the Substructures and Submodeling with Abaqus course.

Who Should Attend

This course is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus.

What is Included

Electronic copies of the training notes will be provided to each registrant for their personal use. Every registrant will also receive a copy of Abaqus Student Edition.
