Linear dynamics and acoustics simulation has become standard practice in many industries to increase user comfort, increase product efficiency, decrease fatigue, and improve the overall experience with engineering products by consumers. This course introduces the user to the algorithms and methods used to study linear dynamic problems with Abaqus/Standard. Additional attention will be devoted to acoustics simulation and noise. In this course, attendees will learn how to extract eigenmodes about a certain frequency, maximize the convergence rate during eigenvalue extraction, determine whether the number of extracted eigenmodes is sufficient to represent the structure's response adequately, perform transient, steady-state, response spectrum and random response analyses using the eigenmodes, use multiple base motions, and apply damping in linear problems for structures and solids, including internal and external acoustics.
Although the course content is a subset of the standard Linear Dynamics with Abaqus course, attendees will receive the full set of lecture notes from the standard course. This course material has additionally been updated with new material on acoustics modeling and simulation based on new functionality in the SIMULIA product suite.
Obtaining converged solutions for highly nonlinear simulations can sometimes be challenging. Difficulties can arise, especially in simulations involving contact, complicated material models and geometrically unstable behavior. Many years of practical experience in understanding and resolving convergence issues have been condensed into this course.
Upon completion of this course you will be able to:
- Understand how nonlinear problems are solved in Abaqus
- Develop Abaqus models that will converge
- Identify modeling errors that cause models to experience convergence difficulties
- Recognize when a problem is too difficult or too illposed to be solved effectively
This course is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus.
This half day Workshop is aimed at new fe-safe users, soon-to-be users and any FE analysts who would like to better understand how fe-safe fits into the design process.
It is a pre-cursor to the full 2 day 'Introduction to fe-safe' training class and should not be seen as a replacement for the full training class. The workshop language is English.
