The size and complexity of designs that are analyzed and tested with Abaqus continues to grow. Substructuring allows you to break large problems into several smaller components.  In this seminar you will learn how to:

  • Maximize CPU savings when using substructures
  • Translate, rotate, and reflect substructures when using multiple copies
  • Build preloads into substructures
  • Plot results within substructures
  • Use substructures in dynamic simulations
  • Use substructures when the problem contains nonlinearities, such as contact
  • Use co-simulation techniques to include substructures in Abaqus/Explicit

This course is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus.
