Free Snack & Learn Webinar: Tips for modeling extreme deformation with Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH)

On September 20, 2012 12:00 (GMT)

This FREE webinar at 12:00pm PDT is recommended for users of Abaqus with an interest Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) and/or deformation that pushes limits of traditional finite elements.


Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) is a recent addition to Abaqus enabling analysis very large deformation and fluid flow; enhancements to Abaqus/CAE have made it even easier to use.

Topics discussed during the one hour webinar include:

  • A brief overview of SPH elements
  • New features in 6.12 for setting up SPH in Abaqus/CAE
  • Conditional conversion of Finite Elements to SPH elements
  • Comparison of when to use SPH vs. other approaches
