Abaqus Examples

Abaqus is a software suite for Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE). Abaqus is used in the automotive, aerospace, and industrial product industries. Abaqus also provides a good collection of multiphysics capabilities, such as coupled acoustic-structural, piezoelectric, and structural-pore capabilities, making it attractive for production-level simulations where multiple fields need to be coupled. Abaqus uses a traditional implicit integration scheme to solve FEA and uses an explicit integration scheme to solve hihgly nonlinear transient dynamic and quasi-static analyses.

You can take advantage of Rescale's ScaleX platform and its simple workflow to run complex and large Abaqus models in batch mode.

Cylinder Head Bolt-up Example

This is a standard benchmark problem on Abaqus - a mildly nonlinear static analysis on an engine block. The model simulates bolting of a cylinder head onto the engine block. Yielding of the gasket accounts for the non-linearity of the simulation.

The model has 5,000,000+ DOF, and the solution is obtained using a direct sparse solver.

Abaqus Car Crash Example

This is an explicit benchmark problem on Abaqus - a car crashing into a rigid wall at 25mph. The complexity, speed and dynamic nature of the impact/contact conditions is a good example of Abaqus/explicit applications. The car is modeled with a von mises material with isotropic hardening.

This model has 200,000+ elements.

Abaqus Tire Footprint Example

This is a standard benchmark problem on Abaqus - a strongly non-linear static analysis of a tire footprint. The model simulates mounting the tire onto the wheel, inflating it, followed by vertical loading. Large displacements, sliding contact and hyperelasticity accounts for the non-linear nature of the model.

This model has 700,000+ DOF.
