Automotive Powertrain Assembly Analysis with Abaqus

Course Objective

The engine assembly process involves the interaction of numerous, geometrically complex, mating components. During operation, the engine assembly is subject to a wide range of severe mechanical and thermal loading conditions. Abaqus/Standard provides powertrain engineers with the tools needed to simulate engine assembly and operation conditions:

  • Automated bolt loading conditions
  • Hertz contact conditions including frictional effects and interference fit operations
  • Rubber component analysis involving finite deformations and finite-sliding contact
  • Nonlinear gasket response and sealing pressure predictions
  • Heat transfer and subsequent thermal-stress analysis
  • Metal plasticity and gray cast iron plasticity
  • Modified tetrahedral elements for modeling complex geometries in contact analyses
  • Substructure modeling

This course does not contain any workshops. The lectures include numerous, practical examples detailing the procedures involved in the simulation of engine components with Abaqus.

Who Should Attend

This course is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus/Standard.
