Industry Day Training Classes
Strategies and Tools for Material Model Calibration
Time: 8:30am – 2:15pm
The key to success with FEA simulation is correlation to the real-world behavior of physical behavior and products. Lack of Physical correlation is often directly related to the lack of accuracy in the material model. This class will give you extra tools to assess the material models that you are currently using and showcase new material models in Abaqus that might better capture the physics important to your component and its loading environment. We will cover advanced material modeling for metals, elastomers, polymers and engineering plastics. Attendees will come away with a thorough understanding of best practices that they can immediately apply in their projects to improve accuracy and performance.
Best Practices for Contact Modeling for Accuracy and Accelerated Convergence
Time: 8:30am – 5:00pm
This course covers current perspectives from SIMULIA R&D on best practices for contact modeling, recent contact enhancements, diagnosing issues, understanding approximations, making informed modeling decisions, and getting reliable results. This seminar will not focus on teaching user interface details. This seminar is geared toward helping those with Abaqus contact modeling experience obtain a next level of understanding and success, especially for implicit contact analyses. Additional likely topics include development trends and approaches to common yet challenging modeling scenarios brought forward by attendees. The seminar will focus on the established Abaqus product line as well as the new technology for linear and CAD-enhanced contact supported by the 3DEXPERIENCE portfolio, plus other enhancements and new workflows resulting from those enhancements.
Open Forum on Modeling of Adhesives
Time: 2:30pm – 5:00pm
At the end of the Material Calibration class, we will be holding a focused discussion with interested parties. Recently we have noted a heightened interest from our customers in the modeling and simulation of adhesives. This discussion will provide an opportunity to hear from users what their needs are, as well as for SIMULIA to describe developments in this area.
