Abaqus/CAE and Abaqus Solvers
With Abaqus/CAE you can quickly and efficiently create, edit, monitor, diagnose, and visualize advanced Abaqus analyses. The intuitive interface integrates modeling, analysis, job management, and results visualization in a consistent, easy-to-use environment that is simple to learn. Abaqus/CAE supports familiar interactive computer-aided engineering concepts such as feature-based, parametric modeling, interactive and scripted operation, and GUI customization. Users can create geometry, import CAD models for meshing, or integrate geometry-based meshes that do not have associated CAD geometry. Associative Interfaces for CATIA V5, SolidWorks, and Pro/ENGINEER enable synchronization of CAD and CAE assemblies, rapidly updating model with no loss of user-defined analysis features. Abaqus/CAE also offers comprehensive visualization options, enabling users to interpret and communicate the Abaqus results.
In this course, a general overview of the important features available in Abaqus/CAE will be covered, including creating parts using the feature-based modeler, importing parts into Abaqus/CAE, partitioning parts, meshing, defining analysis attributes, submitting and managing Abaqus simulations, and viewing the results of the simulations. This course is also intended to complement the Introduction to Abaqus Standard and Abaqus/Explicit course, which briefly describes how to perform linear and nonlinear analyses with Abaqus.
