Power of SIMULIA Portfolio 2: Enhanced Abaqus Welding Interface (Asia-Pacific)

On January 25, 2017 11:00 (GMT+5.5)

11:00 - 12:00 IST

16:30 - 17:30 AEDT

Abaqus has always been a software of choice for modeling welding in various industries.This eSeminar will highlight the capabilities of Abaqus Welding Interface (AWI), including some recent enhancements that make realistic simulation of welding process possible in Abaqus.  AWI places an emphasis on the ease of weld model preparation and setup while supporting options and features that allow realistic predictions of quantities of interest such as distortion and residual stresses. A flux-based energy input option using the Goldak double ellipsoid model is now available for use with the AWI.  Another significant enhancement takes advantage of the new, strain-free element activation technique developed by SIMULIA R&D that has applicability in many important areas including welding.  This new technique improves preprocessing and analysis performance significantly for models of processes involving material deposition such as welding and additive manufacturing, with strain-free element activation no longer a step-dependent feature.

Who should attend the eSeminar?

This eSeminar would be of interest to anyone using (or considering using) the power of simulation as a cost-effective alternative to costly experimental trial-and-error approach to understand distortion, residual stresses etc. resulting from the welding process.This eSeminar is appropriate for both academic and commercial audience.
