Thermal-Stress Analysis with Abaqus

Course Logistics

Take advantage of this live online course right from your desk. Each day of the class will begin with a lecture session. 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 success of many structural designs requires a thorough understanding of both the thermal and mechanical response of the design. Temperature-dependent material properties, thermally-induced deformation, and temperature variations all may be important design considerations. In this seminar you will learn how to use the coupled thermal-stress analysis capabilities available in both Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Sequentially coupled thermal-stress analysis
  • Fully-coupled thermal-stress analysis
  • Adiabatic analysis
  • Element selection for thermal-stress analysis

This online course is a customized subset of the Heat Transfer and Thermal-Stress Analysis with Abaqus course.

Who Should Attend

If you do not have experience performing heat transfer analyses with Abaqus consider reviewing the relevant sections of the Abaqus manual before attending this class, such as "Uncoupled heat transfer analysis," section 6.5.2 of the 6.11 Abaqus Analysis User's Guide and "Conductive, convective, and radiative heat transfer in an exhaust manifold," section 5.1.5 of the 6.11 Abaqus Example Problems Guide.

What is Included

Electronic copies of the training notes will be provided to each registrant for their personal use. Every registrant will also receive a copy of Abaqus Student Edition. No additional Abaqus licenses will be provided, so to ensure that you can perform all the workshops fully you will need access to a licensed copy of Abaqus.
