ABAQUS FEA TRAINING
All of our fully interactive classes are instructor-led by an experienced Abaqus engineer. Students are encouraged to ask questions about the material at hand as well as topics pertaining to their application of interest. (i.e., pick our brains!)
By enrolling in one of the upcoming classes as listed below, you are guaranteed a spot in the class because we always provide the course, even when only one student registers. Simply call us at 1-704-594-1113 to register.
Startup Nonlinear Structural Analysis with Abaqus (ABNSA) – 2.0 Days
This class is ideal for those students new to Abaqus and Abaqus/CAE and perhaps has had some experience in the past with other codes, or some level of education of the Finite Element Method. Another ideal student would be one who had used Abaqus in the past yet could use a refresher. That said, a student who is completely beginning to learn FEA will also be able to progress in the use of Abaqus with good efficacy. The emphasis of ABNSA is: nonlinear structural stress-displacement analysis, which still today will cover 70-80% of the analysis requirements in the field. A pre-requisite for the student is to have local access to the full version of Abaqus to effectively attend. The syllabus for ABNSA can be downloaded here.
Student Nonlinear Structural Analysis with Abaqus (ABSTU) – 1.5 Days
This class is for students who are totally new to Abaqus and Abaqus/CAE yet do not have access to the full version of Abaqus quite yet. This class is very similar as ABNSA (see above) yet is taught whereby you can use the Student Version of Abaqus. We will still discuss nonlinear mechanics and setup interesting meshes on geometry, but due to the limited capability of the student version to run these models through the solver, we keep this class on a more basic level mainly for the beginner. The syllabus for ABSTU can be downloaded here.
Intermediate Topic Fasteners (ABFAS) – 1.0 Days
Using fasteners in Abaqus and doing fastener analysis is a typical requirement for some industries. Stemming from the ground-level ABNSA course, we now walk you through a variety of robust workflows for how to best utilize Abaqus for these fastener related tasks, including methods for speeding up the process of setting up your fastener patterns. Solid experience running Abaqus/CAE is a pre-requisite as is having local access to the Abaqus program. The syllabus for ABFAS can be downloaded here.
Intermediate Topic Contact Simulation (ABCON) – 1.0 Days
One reason engineers choose to use Abaqus is due it’s best-in-class contact simulation capabilities. In this class, we take a deeper dive into the options of and pros-and-cons of the various methods in Abaqus to simulate contact, and share what we have found to be robust. Solid knowledge of running Abaqus/CAE is a pre-requisite as is having local access to the Abaqus program. The syllabus for ABCON can be downloaded here.
Intermediate Topic Inelastic (Nonlinear) Buckling (ABNLB) – 2.0 Days
How do we manage the analysis/simulation of a buckling phenomenon? Why is this a nonlinear event? What are the limitations of the typical linear eigenvalue bucking analysis and how would it fit into our workflow? In this class, we discuss the evolution of the buckling process as is develops through one of your cross sectional members during the simulation of your loaded assembly. Solid experience running Abaqus/CAE is a pre-requisite as is having local access to the Abaqus program. The syllabus for ABCON can be downloaded here.
