Fracture and failure modeling allows for product designs that maximize the safe operating life of structural components. Abaqus offers many capabilities that enable fracture and failure modeling. This seminar provides a detailed discussion of these capabilities. During the seminar's lectures and workshops users will learn about:
- Proper modeling techniques for capturing crack-tip singularities in fracture mechanics problems
- Proper modeling techniques for finite-strain (nonlinear) fracture mechanics problems
- Using Abaqus/CAE to create meshes appropriate for fracture studies
- Calculation of stress intensity factors and contour integrals around a crack tip
- Material damage and failure models
- Wear and erosion modeling
- Simulating crack growth using cohesive connections
- Simulating crack growth using VCCT
- Simulating crack growth using XFEM
- Simulating low-cycle fatigue crack growth
Who Should Attend
This seminar is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus. Experience with Abaqus/CAE is desirable.
The overview provides details of the topics covered in each lecture. Please note that the actual course agenda may vary depending on location.
