Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE
Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE complements and extends the powerful ply modeling features in Abaqus/CAE by providing proven fiber simulation capabilities and advanced model building—all seamlessly integrated within Abaqus/CAE.
Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE directly transfers accurate fiber angles and ply thicknesses to Abaqus simulations for unprecedented accuracy, and allows rapid review and modification of the composites model for rapid design improvement. The product also generates manufacturing data to ensure that the analyzed model matches the final structure, and provides direct integration with Simulayt’s Layup Pipeline for seamless communication across the enterprise.
Benefits of Composites Modeler for Abaqus/CAE
- Prevents specification of plies and structures that cannot be manufactured, avoiding costly mistakes.
- Improves model fidelity and reduces setup time to allow rapid design improvement.
- Allows seamless analysis, design and manufacture integration across the enterprise to promote development efficiency.
The Abaqus Product Suite
Abaqus/Standard is ideally suited for static, low-speed dynamic, and steady-state transport applications.It enables analyses of a model in both time and frequency domain in one single simulation. Abaqus/Standard delivers highly accurate stress analyses.
Abaqus /Standard can provide starting points for Abaqus/Explicit simulations as well as continuing from Abaqus/Explicit results. Pre- and postprocessing is supported within the Abaqus/CAE modeling environment.
Abaqus/Explicit enables the simulation of brief transient dynamic events, such as drop testing or ballistic events with finite element analysis. Its ability to handle severely non-linear behavior makes Abaqus/Explicit ideally suited for the simulation of quasi-static events such as slow crushing of energy absorbing devices.
With Abaqus/CAE you can quickly and efficiently create, edit, monitor, diagnose, and visualize advanced Abaqus analyses. It supports interactive computer-aided engineering concepts such as feature-based, parametric modeling, interactive and scripted operation. Besides the built-in geometry creation it enables interfacing with other CAD environments for geometry and mesh imports or model synchronization. Abaqus/CAE also offers comprehensive visualization options, which enable users to interpret and communicate the results of any Abaqus analysis.
