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.

Explore Abaqus/Standard


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.
