Value proposition

Abaqus is integrated with modeFRONTIER ( as a direct interface node. In this modular environment, the users can easily define a workflow linking together different modules that represent the ‘bricks’ of the optimization problem: design variables, file templates, CAE nodes, specified outputs, as well as optimization objectives and constraints.

After having selected an available Optimization Algorithm or Design of Experiments, the sequence of needed design configurations is run automatically, until the specified objectives are satisfied, or the designs database is filled for Statistical Analysis or Response Surface, using the available modeFRONTIER post-processing tools.

In this scenario, Abaqus users can easily define the rules to parameterize the macro script used for the automatic Abaqus simulations, while the direct interface is used to automatically parse the .odb output file, extracting the required outputs from the available list. The introspection of the output file is performed automatically by the Abaqus direct node available in modeFRONTIER workflow through dedicated API interfaces, that allow the direct parsing of any defined output parameter, including scalar quantities or vector components, region filters or node/element sets.

ESTECO believes that cooperation is essential to effectively respond to customers' needs, and to develop and maintain a state-of-the-art industrial technology, fully integrated with commercial and proprietary parametric software. Here are some success stories with Abaqus please
