Abaqus Overview

Today, product simulation is often being performed by engineering groups using niche simulation tools from different vendors to simulate various design attributes. The use of multiple vendor software products creates inefficiencies and increases costs. SIMULIA delivers a scalable suite of unified analysis products that allow all users, regardless of their simulation expertise or domain focus, to collaborate and seamlessly share simulation data and approved methods without loss of information fidelity.

The Abaqus Unified FEA product suite offers powerful and complete solutions for both routine and sophisticated engineering problems covering a vast spectrum of industrial applications. In the automotive industry engineering work groups are able to consider full vehicle loads, dynamic vibration, multibody systems, impact/crash, nonlinear static, thermal coupling, and acoustic-structural coupling using a common model data structure and integrated solver technology. Best-in-class companies are taking advantage of Abaqus Unified FEA to consolidate their processes and tools, reduce costs and inefficiencies, and gain a competitive advantage.

Abaqus is currently available on the nic-cluster and various Windows CLCs on campus.  You can find the list of CLC systems with Abaqus by visiting https://itweb.mst.edu/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/clcreq/software_list.pl

You can find more general infromation about abaqus at http://www.3ds.com/

HPC Docs

On the NIC cluster abaqus can be used both interactively and through batch processing in the queue system.

HPC Tutorials

Note all the tutorials below jsut show how to launch the application and see results.  There are currently no available tutorials for Abaqus itself just it's general use on the cluser.

Windows Docs

The general abaqus documentation at http://nic-cluster.mst.edu/abaqus/ will give the general information needed for abaqus on Windows.
