Dynamic Simulation Excellence

Abaqus/Explicit is an explicit-dynamic finite-element solver that is most suitable for simulation of brief transient and dynamic events such as drop tests of consumer electronics, automotive crashes, and ballistic impacts. The growing popularity of Abaqus/Explicit is due to its unique expertise at handling nonlinear behavior effectively. It makes Abaqus/Explicit ideal for the simulation of many quasi-static events such as rolling of hot metal and slow crushing of energy absorbing structures. The key elements of its architecture are ease of use, reliability, and efficiency for production environments. The Abaqus/CAE modeling environment supports Abaqus/Explicit for all common pre- and post-processing.

Abaqus/Explicit and Abaqus/Standard are designed to work cohesively allowing you to couple the two solvers. You can continue a simulation that starts in Abaqus/Standard, in Abaqus/Explicit and conversely. The importing functionality allows users to apply Abaqus/Explicit to specific portions of the analysis that are well suited to an explicit-dynamic solution technique. Alternatively, users can apply Abaqus/Standard to those portions of the analysis more suitable for an implicit solver.
