Discover the Abaqus/Standard Advantage

Abaqus/Standard is a general-purpose finite-element solver designed to simulate true static and structural dynamic events. Abaqus/Standard applications include thermal-stress analysis, sealing evaluations, steady-state rolling simulation, fracture mechanics studies, heat-transfer modeling, acoustics, pore pressure, and so forth.

Abaqus/Standard has powerful linear dynamics capabilities including the AMS EigenSolver which can efficiently identify numerous natural frequencies for models with various degrees of freedom. Abaqus/Standard has a curated library of elements accessible to users for its wide range of applications. It also has an extensive library of material models ranging from linear elasticity to rate-dependent kinematic plasticity to continuum damage.

Users can customize and extend Abaqus/Standard through the coding of subroutines for material models, elements, loads, and boundary conditions. The Abaqus/CAE modeling environment supports Abaqus/Standard for all typical pre- and post-processing requirements.

Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit are designed to work cohesively allowing you to couple the two solvers. You can continue a simulation that starts in Abaqus/Explicit, in Abaqus/Standard and conversely. The importing functionality allows users to apply Abaqus/Standard to those portions of the analysis that are well suited to an implicit solution technique. Alternatively, users can apply Abaqus/Explicit to those portions of the analysis where high-speed, nonlinear, transient response dominates the solution.
