Join us on this one hour FREE eSeminar at 11:00am IST.

Contact interactions between different parts play a key role when simulating bolted assemblies, manufacturing processes, dynamic impact events, and various other systems. Accurately capturing these interactions is essential for solving many engineering problems. SIMULIA has developed state-of-the-art contact modeling capabilities in Abaqus. Attend this webinar to learn the latest techniques and strategies for solving difficult contact problems with Abaqus. This webinar will primarily focus on Abaqus/Standard, with additional discussion of Abaqus/Explicit. Topics include advantages of the general contact capability, obtaining accurate contact pressures, insight on numerical methods, tips for improving convergence, use of the implicit dynamics procedure to improve robustness, and properly representing physical details associated with contact. Some discussion touches on topics somewhat related to contact, such as delamination/fracture, pressure-penetration loading, and particle-based methods.

This webinar is geared toward those with some Abaqus contact modeling experience.
