Course Objective:

This course provides an in-depth discussion on solving non-linear problems in Abaqus/Standard with an emphasis on modeling and convergence-related issues for contact.

Engineers at Abaqus have developed many techniques and guidelines for solving challenging contact problems. Convergence issues related to complicated material models and geometrically unstable behavior are also covered. Many years of practical experience in understanding and resolving convergence issues have been condensed into this course.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Understand how nonlinear problems are solved in Abaqus
  • Develop Abaqus models that will converge
  • Identify modeling errors that cause models to experience convergence difficulties
  • Define general contact and contact pairs
  • Define appropriate surfaces (rigid or deformable)
  • Model frictional contact
  • Model large sliding between deformable bodies
  • Resolve overclosures in interference fit problems

The course is divided into lectures and workshops.

The course’s workshops are integral to the training. They are designed to reinforce concepts presented during the lectures. They are intended to provide users with the experience of running and trouble-shooting actual Abaqus analyses

Who Should Attend?

This course is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus/Standard. If you are a beginning Abaqus user, you might want to consider following any of the introduction courses.
