Abaqus/Standard is ideally suited for static, low-speed dynamic, and steady-state transport applications.
Abaqus/Standard is a technology designed to solve traditional finite element analysis problems such as statics, dynamics, heat transfer in conjunction with contact interactions and non-linear material properties, based on an implicit integration scheme. Examples include seal joint pressure, crack propagation in an aircraft composite fuselage, or pressure inside an inflated tire.
Within the framework of one task, it is possible to analyze the model in both the time and frequency domains. Let’s take a small example: the task of analyzing the stress-strain state of the engine cover fasteners depending on the vibration during its operation. We perform non-linear analysis of fasteners, including gasket mechanics and beyond, can investigate the mechanical and acoustic response of a prestressed pavement to motor-induced vibrations in the frequency domain.
The results obtained at any stage of the calculation execution can be transferred as initial conditions between Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit. Due to this integration, each of the tools can be used in one or another part of the analysis: Abaqus/Standard – an implicit solution method such as static, low-speed dynamic, or steady-state transport analysis; Abaqus/Explicit – high-speed, non-linear, transient response.
