Laser forming simulation tutorial in Abaqus

The laser forming process is performed by applying thermal stresses to the workpiece surface by heating the surface with a laser beam. These internal stresses induce plastic strains in the part resulting in local elastic-plastic deformation (Laser-induced plastic deformation). In this laser forming simulation tutorial the DFLUX subroutine is used to apply heat flux (Gaussian heat distribution) dependent on location and time in finite element simulation. For example, the linear heating processes of laser forming and welding (with a slight simplification) can be simulated by this subroutine. In the linear heating process, by applying heat flux to the surface of a sheet, a thermal gradient is created in its thickness. This thermal gradient causes permanent deformation of the sheet. To simulate the laser forming process, it is necessary to apply a time and location-dependent heat flux to the sheet. In this type of loading, a heat flux is applied on the plate, which is defined using the DFLUX subroutine, including the laser power, movement speed, beam diameter, absorption coefficient, and laser movement path according to the designed experiments (Laser forming process parameters). To verify this Abaqus laser forming simulation, the simulation results and experimental results of sheet deformation (U) are compared. The displacement of the sheet in the simulation is in good agreement with the experimental results.

Car part industrial simulation

Car industrial parts are complex and critical components that play a vital role in the operation of a car. Two such parts are the exhaust manifold and the internal combustion engine (IC engine). The exhaust manifold directs hot exhaust gases from the engine's cylinders into the exhaust system and is typically made of cast iron or stainless steel. The IC engine converts fuel into mechanical energy by burning fuel in a controlled explosion within the engine cylinder. High temperatures and pressures must be considered in the design, and the components must be made of durable materials that can withstand the stresses of constant combustion. Therefore, it is important to know how these parts respond under different loading conditions to have the best design possible. In this package, there are two workshops to help you with this job: Heat transfer analysis in an exhaust manifold and Thermomechanical analysis of an exhaust manifold.

Earthquake simulation in Abaqus

It is known that an earthquake is a disastrous event that can cause great damage to buildings, structures, and even people.

With finite element analyses, engineers can predict the behaviour of structures under earthquake loading. With this method, they can determine the best way to design a structure to withstand an earthquake.

Abaqus CFD Analysis

Fluid-Structure Interaction also known as FSI is a multiphysics problem where the fluid and structure are coupled. The fluid flow can cause the structure to deform, and the deformation of the structure can affect the flow. So when you want to design something, you need to know how the structure will deform and how that deformation affects the flow. Common examples of FSI analysis are airplanes, cars, spacecrafts, and buildings. Other examples like junctions in piping systems, or the human circulatory system. CFD is a branch of research that uses numerical methods to solve the mathematical equations governing fluid flow, heat transfer, mass transfer, chemical reactions, and related phenomena. In Abaqus, you can model both methods. In this package, we present to you three workshops to get you started with CFD and FSI: “Using CFD methods in Abaqus, examining heat mixing and reverse flow characteristics in a T-junction”, “impact of air velocity over the short column”, “simulate fluid structure interaction on an aluminum body with a flexible tail in Abaqus”.

HETVAL subroutine in ABAQUS

HETVAL is a user subroutine specifically developed to address the limitations of Abaqus in accurately handling volumetric heat flux resulting from internal heat generation within materials. The subroutine’s functionality depends on factors such as time, temperature, or evolving state variables, stored as solution-dependent variables. Accordingly, it can tackle scenarios involving phase changes during simulations. Moreover, the subroutine allows the integration of kinetic theory to account for phase changes associated with internal heat release, such as predicting crystallization in polymer casting processes. Such a multi-functional subroutine finds applications in heat transfer analyses, coupled thermal-electric studies, or temperature-displacement analyses. In this package, our primary goal is to provide valuable insights into the HETVAL subroutine and its diverse applications. Afterward, through a series of comprehensive workshops, we will guide participants in utilizing HETVAL under various conditions. In the final workshop, a problem will be presented, allowing you to explore a realistic example and gain hands-on experience in simulating the curing process within fiber-reinforced composites using HETVAL. Furthermore, to assist those unfamiliar with fiber-reinforced composites, we have included an introductory lesson covering their applications, significance, and an explanation of the importance of accurately simulating the curing process. By completing this package, you will have gained a comprehensive understanding of utilizing HETVAL across various conditions and scenarios. Moreover, you will have acquired the ability to simulate the heat generated during the curing process of fiber-reinforced composites, demonstrating a real-world application of HETVAL.
