Abaqus Example

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 highly 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.
