Contact modeling is one of the most distinguishing features of Abaqus, widely exercised by many of our users. Due to its complexity and highly non-linear character, contact modeling is continuously evolving. The strive for better fidelity in the modeling, robustness in the execution and ease of use makes contact a customary target of the development team. Abaqus 6.13 is no exception, and this webinar covers its new contact capabilities. For easier understanding they will be presented in the larger context of the already existing contact modeling framework. Specifically, the following features will be addressed:

  • Beam to Surface and Beam to Beam contact in Abaqus Standard
  • Adaptive contact stabilization
  • Friction coefficient enhancements
  • Contact in perturbation steps
  • Contact thickness enhancements in Abaqus Explicit
  • SPH parallelization
  • Introduction of the Discrete Element Method
