XFEM vs. Classical Fracture Modeling Techniques in Abaqus
This seminar provides a discussion of some of the conventional FEA techniques for predicting stress intensity factor and J-integrals. Then the focus will be on updating your skills to using the new XFEM technique. During the seminar's lectures and workshops users will learn about:
- How to use proper modeling techniques for capturing crack-tip singularities in fracture mechanics problems
- How to use Abaqus/CAE to create meshes appropriate for fracture studies
- How to calculate stress intensity factors and contour integrals around a crack tip
- How to simulate crack growth using XFEM
This course is a customized subset of the Modeling Fracture and Failure with Abaqus course.
Who should attend
This seminar is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus. Experience with Abaqus/CAE is desirable.
