Abaqus FEA (formerly ABAQUS) is a software suite for finite element analysis and computer-aided engineering, originally released in 1978. The name and logo of this software are based on the abacus calculation tool.
The Abaqus product suite consists of five core software products:
Abaqus/CAE, or "Complete Abaqus Environment" (a backronym with a root in Computer-Aided Engineering). It is a software application used for both the modeling and analysis of mechanical components and assemblies (pre-processing) and visualizing the finite element analysis result. A subset of Abaqus/CAE including only the post-processing module can be launched independently in the Abaqus/Viewer product.
Abaqus/Standard, a general-purpose Finite-Element analyzer that employs implicit integration scheme (traditional).
Abaqus/Explicit, a special-purpose Finite-Element analyzer that employs explicit integration scheme to solve highly nonlinear systems with many complex contacts under transient loads.
Abaqus/CFD, a Computational Fluid Dynamics software application which provides advanced computational fluid dynamics capabilities with extensive support for preprocessing and postprocessing provided in Abaqus/CAE.
Abaqus/Electromagnetic, a Computational electromagnetics software application which solves advanced computational electromagnetic problems.The Abaqus products use the open-source scripting language Python for scripting and customization. Abaqus/CAE uses the fox-toolkit for GUI development.
Hello,
I am trying to simulate the load-unload test in Abaqus under the following loading schedule using my UMAT (which has already been validated).
As you see, the load-unload test is pure tensile with positive displacements; however as I modelled it in Abaqus the force-displacement curve as...
I am currently working on a FE simulation project where a tensile test of DP800 steel is subjected to cyclic loading.
It utilizes Yoshida Uemori model (YUM) to formulate the modulus of elasticity (E) to simulate the hysteresis caused by cyclic loading.
We are using a USDFLD subroutine in...
Hello together,
I need help for my bachelor thesis. We want to simulate the mechanical properties of polyurethane foam using the Gibson-Ashby model in Abaqus. So I would like to know if there is a library or something similar for Abaqus. I'm fairly new to Abaqus and the Gibson-Ashboy model, so...
Hi,
I have inputs like displacement of a driving mechanism and then the frequency of concern .
Displacement: 0.2 mm
Concerned Frequency: 100 Hz
I would like to evaluate a part with the input displacement applied to a node and not as base excitation.
It can be sweep over the frequency range...
I'm doing static analysis. I have already set up all the prerequisites, preprocessors such as material addition, sectioning, defining boundary conditions, and displacement. However, I'm not getting the results. Please suggest anything.
Kindly find the attachment.

Hello,
I have faced a weird problem and would really appreciate any comments. Assume a 2D model e.g. an axisymmetric model, meshed with quad, linear, and reduced integration elements.
As you now if a model contains contact, we will get "CSHEAR1" and "CSHEAR2" in outputs. Assuming that the...
Hi,
I want to model the phenomena that a windshield gets covered in ice during a night with clear sky even tough the air holds a temperature of a few degrees above zero Celsius (at which water freezes for sea level pressure). Clearly the windshield gets a temperature below zero Celsius, and...

Hi all,
I have performed a small static analysis with one element (C3D8). The bottom face of element is completely constrained, and the top part is displaced.
In the geometrical linear analysis, the internal energy (ALLIE) and the work done (ALLWK) are equal. So, with ETOTAL = ALLIE - ALLWK...
I am trying to evaluate pure Mode-II SIF using Abaqus for edge normal crack in the plate. The solution i am getting using Abaqus is not matching with the theoretical SIF.
The boundary condition i have used is shown in fig attached.
suggest me proper boundary condition to evaluate the SIF.
Hi all,
I have some doubts regarding the strain tensors Abaqus uses for the case of Geometrical non linear analysis.
In the case of geometrically linear analysis, all the strain tensors will be equal to engineering strain, So it doesn't matter which strain tensor Abaqus uses.
But for...
Hi all,
I have a personal project I am working on in Abaqus CAE/Explicit 2017. I have a tube, that I am trying to advance into a larger tube with a bend in it. The idea is that the small tube enters and then deforms around the bend as it comes into contact with the radius of curvature of the...

HI
I am not sure why there is a problem with my material model, I seem to be getting an error: "Only one hardening slope is allowed for kinematic hardening".
material property is:
tangent modulus (Et = 15GPa)

please help me
Hi everyone,
This is my first time posting here
I am looking to get some help with Abaqus,

I plan to do...
Hello to everyone,
I've just started my PhD in Mechanical Engineering. And we've to buy a computing machine of high end to use ABAQUS and COMSOL software. Can anybody recommend the machines which can run these both software.
P.S: We have to use Windows because there seems to be some graphics...
I'm new to Abaqus and FEA in general, but my professor asked the class to do a simple analysis on a beam using Abaqus, just to introduce us into FEA methods. I've managed to do almost everything he asked for, but I'm confused about some notations when I get the results. I understand that s11...
In ABAQUS, I have modeled a assembly containing two parts with lot of constraints and other engineering features which are very crucial to my FE analysis. The job ran successfully and I have got satisfactory results. As a next step, I would like to import this model into the Multi Body Software...
Hi all,
I'm hoping there's someone here who can give me a little help. So I've run a large number of fatigue tests, both stress and strain controlled, and using the data from these I've calibrated material constants for the chaboche model in Abaqus and run the simulations getting fairly similar...

I want to start some research on the Carbon nano - tubes.
In the beginning I need to model a CNT in the ABAQUS.
I wrote a code for generating the xyz Coordinates of the atoms in a CNT.
The problem is that I can not import them in abaqus.
Does anyone has an Idea ?
Thanks...

In all the Abaqus manuals I have read, it only tells me what the pre-tension option DOES, or a little bit about how it works, but what I want to know is literally which buttons to press to get to that option and how to apply it. I can't find the option anywhere in the software.
