After the lecture, workshop sessions are conducted offline with technical support provided by hosting office via phone and email. Some hosting offices also allow for in-person attendance.


The size and complexity of designs that are analyzed and tested with Abaqus continues to grow. Submodeling allows you to study a local region of a model based on an existing solution from a global model.

This seminar includes the following topics:

  • When submodeling can be useful
  • The proper design of a coarse, global analysis that can "drive" the submodel analysis
  • Mesh design for the submodel analysis
  • Shell-to-shell and shell-to-solid submodeling
  • Solid-to-solid submodeling
  • Submodeling in nonstructural problems

This course is a customized subset of the Substructures and Submodeling with Abaqus.
