What's new in Abaqus 2019

Complete solutions for realistic simulation

The Abaqus Unified FEA product suite offers powerful and complete solutions for both routine and sophisticated engineering problems covering a vast spectrum of industrial applications. Compute licensing for sustained usage requires access to a pool of reusable tokens:  Abaqus Tokens (QAT) provide sustained computing for Abaqus only while Extended Tokens (QXT) include computing capability for Abaqus, fe-safe for durability analysis, Isight for parametric optimization and process automation, and Tosca for topology and shape optimization.

Abaqus/CAE is the dedicated pre- and post-processor for Abaqus Unified FEA. QAE trigram provides access to one seat of Abaqus/CAE.  An extended license option QAX trigram provides access to one seat of Abaqus/CAE, the Isight Runtime Gateway, or fe-Safe.

The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform provides extended values for Abaqus users through Social and PLM Collaboration allowing increased productivity, collaboration, and visibility to simulation work and results throughout the Enterprise.  The following 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation role connects Abaqus Unified FEA to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform:

          • Abaqus Specialist (PXA)

Abaqus capabilities are also available natively in of the 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation portfolio in the following Roles and options which deliver structural simulation on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform:

          • Stress Engineer (MDS)

          • Structural Stress Engineer (DRD)

          • Mechanical Analyst (SMU)

          • Simulation Results Analyst (SRA)


  • Improved correlation between tests and analysis results
  • Greater efficiency in model generation
  • Improved data transfer between simulations
  • Reduction in a company’s FEA toolset and training expenses
  • More flexible workforce through standardization on a single complete capability for structural simulation


Abaqus Unified FEA is the world’s technology-leading suite of software for structural finite element modeling, solving, and visualization.

  • Linear and nonlinear analysis including geometric, material, and contact nonlinearities.
  • Material models for metals, composites, human tissue, rubber, thermoplastics, and more
  • Material fracture and failure
  • Robust contact capabilities
  • High-performance computing
