Abaqus Analysis User's Manual
This is the Abaqus manual you will use most often with Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit. Split into five volumes, it is a complete reference manual for all of the capabilities of both products and contains a complete description of the elements, material models, procedures, input specifications, etc. Both input file usage and Abaqus/CAE usage information are provided in this manual.
Abaqus Example Problems Manual
This online-only manual contains detailed examples designed to illustrate the approaches and decisions needed to perform meaningful linear and nonlinear analysis. Typical cases are large motion of an elastic-plastic pipe hitting a rigid wall; inelastic buckling collapse of a thin-walled elbow; explosive loading of an elastic, viscoplastic thin ring; consolidation under a footing; buckling of a composite shell with a hole; and deep drawing of a metal sheet. It is generally useful to look for relevant examples in this manual and to review them when embarking on a new class of problem.
Abaqus Benchmarks Manual
This online-only manual contains benchmark problems and analyses used to evaluate the performance of Abaqus; the tests are multiple element tests of simple geometries or simplified versions of real problems. The NAFEMS benchmark problems are included in this manual.
Getting Started with Abaqus: Interactive Edition
This manual is designed to guide new users in creating solid, shell, and framework models with Abaqus/CAE; analyzing these models with Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit; and viewing the results in the Visualization module of Abaqus/CAE. You do not need previous knowledge of Abaqus to benefit from this guide, although some prior exposure to the finite element method is recommended. The manual discusses topics such as a quick overview of implicit and explicit methods, element selection, dynamics, nonlinearity, materials, multi-step analysis, and contact. Each chapter includes fully worked examples in a tutorial format that provide practical guidelines for performing structural analyses with Abaqus. If you are already familiar with Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit, basic and advanced tutorials are also provided to introduce you to the Abaqus/CAE interface.
Getting Started with Abaqus: Keywords Edition
This online-only document is designed to help new users become familiar with the Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit input file syntax for static and dynamic stress analysis simulations. The keyword interface is used to model examples similar to those included in Getting Started with Abaqus: Interactive Edition.
Abaqus Installation and Licensing Guide
This document describes how to install Abaqus and how to configure the installation for particular circumstances. Some of this information, of most relevance to users, is also provided in the Abaqus Analysis User's Manual.

Abaqus Keywords Reference Manual
This volume contains a complete description of all the input options that are available in Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit.
Abaqus Theory Manual
This online-only manual contains detailed, precise discussions of all theoretical aspects of Abaqus. It is written to be understood by users with an engineering background.
Abaqus Verification Manual
This online-only volume contains basic test cases, providing verification of each individual program feature (procedures, output options, MPCs, etc.) against exact calculations and other published results. It may be useful to run these problems when learning to use a new capability. In addition, the supplied input data files provide good starting points to check the behavior of elements, materials, etc.
Abaqus User Subroutines Reference Manual
This online-only manual describes all of the user subroutines and utility routines available in Abaqus. The interface and requirements for each user subroutine are discussed in detail. References to practical examples of most subroutines are also provided. Utility routines can be used within user subroutines to perform a variety of common tasks. The interface for all available utility routines appears in a separate chapter.
This online-only glossary defines technical terms as they apply to the Abaqus Unified FEA Product Suite.
Abaqus Scripting User's Manual
This online-only manual provides a description of the Abaqus Scripting Interface. The manual describes how commands can be used to create and analyze Abaqus/CAE models, to view the results of the analysis, and to automate repetitive tasks. It also contains information on using the Abaqus Scripting Interface or C++ as an application programming interface (API) to the output database.
Abaqus Scripting Reference Manual
This online-only manual provides a command reference that lists the syntax of each command in the Abaqus Scripting Interface.
Abaqus GUI Toolkit User's Manual
This online-only manual provides a description of the Abaqus GUI Toolkit. The manual describes the components and organization of the Abaqus GUI. It also describes how you can customize the Abaqus GUI to build a particular application. The manual takes you through the process of writing an application by explaining how to use the components of the toolkit and by providing snippets of example code.

Abaqus Interface for MSC.ADAMS User's Manual
This online-only manual describes how to use the Abaqus Interface for MSC.ADAMS which creates Abaqus models of MSC.ADAMS components and converts the Abaqus results into an MSC.ADAMS modal neutral file that can be used by the ADAMS/Flex program. It is the basic reference document for the Abaqus Interface for MSC.ADAMS.
Abaqus Interface for Moldflow User's Manual
This online-only manual describes how to use the Abaqus Interface for Moldflow which creates a partial Abaqus input file by translating results from a Moldflow polymer processing simulation. It is the basic reference document for the Abaqus Interface for Moldflow.
