Additive Manufacturing or 3D Printing Abaqus simulation

3D printing is a process of creating three-dimensional objects by layering materials, such as plastic or metal, based on a digital design. 3D printing simulation involves using software to predict and optimize the printing process, allowing for more efficient and accurate production. This educational package includes two 3D printing modeling methods. The first method is based on the use of subroutines and Python scripting. After an introduction to the 3D printing process, the first method with all of its detail is explained; then, there would be two workshops for this method; the first workshop is for the 3D printing simulation of a gear with uniform cross-section and the second one is for a shaft with non-uniform cross-section. The second method uses a plug-in called AM Modeler. With this plug-in, the type of 3D printing can be selected, and after inserting the required inputs and applying some settings, the 3D printing simulation is done without any need for coding. Two main workshops will be taught to learn how to use this plug-in: "Sequential thermomechanical analysis of simple cube one-direction with LPBF 3D printing method using the trajectory-based method with AM plug-in" and "3D printing simulation with Fusion deposition modeling and Laser direct energy deposition method with AM plug-in".

Simulation of shape control by piezoelectric in Abaqus

Piezoelectricity refers to the accumulation of electric charge in certain solid materials due to mechanical pressure. This phenomenon, known as the piezoelectric effect, is reversible. Some materials exhibit direct piezoelectricity, which involves the internal production of electric charge through the application of mechanical force, while others exhibit the inverse piezoelectric effect. By harnessing piezoelectrics, it becomes possible to control the geometrical changes of objects in response to external forces. However, it is important to note that utilizing this property in all situations would not be cost-effective. Therefore, it is more practical to use piezoelectric structures selectively, specifically in special applications. One approach to determining the optimal placement of piezoelectric elements for controlling the geometric shape of various objects under internal or external forces involves utilizing the Abaqus and MATLAB software linkage. This software combination, along with optimization algorithms such as the bird optimization algorithm, can be employed to achieve the desired objectives. By leveraging these tools and data, the primary goal of controlling object shape can be successfully accomplished. In this training package, you will learn about piezoelectric and piezoelectric modeling in Abaqus, the bird optimization algorithm, linking Abaqus and MATLAB, and how to use these tools for shape control.

Piezoelectric simulation in Abaqus

Piezoelectric materials exhibit a unique property known as piezoelectricity, where they can generate electric charges when subjected to mechanical stress or deformation, and conversely, deform when an electric field is applied. This phenomenon arises from their crystal structure, enabling the conversion of mechanical energy into electrical energy and vice versa. Simulating piezoelectric materials is of great importance as it allows engineers to optimize the design and performance of devices and systems that utilize these materials. Through simulations, engineers can analyze factors like stress distribution, deformation, and electrical response, aiding in performance prediction and failure analysis. Simulations also enable the study of parameter sensitivity, understanding how changes in parameters impact piezoelectric devices. This information helps in making informed design decisions and optimizing the integration of piezoelectric components into larger systems. Furthermore, simulating piezoelectric materials reduces the need for physical prototypes, saving time and costs associated with experimental setups. It enhances the understanding and development of piezoelectric technology, facilitating its widespread application in various industries. In this training package, you will learn what is a piezoelectric, types of piezoelectric, piezoelectric applications, and how to simulate piezoelectrics in Abaqus.

Creep Analysis in Abaqus

In engineering, creep phenomenon refers to the gradual deformation or strain that occurs in a material over time when it is subjected to a constant load or stress (usually lower than yield stress) at high temperatures. It is a time-dependent process that can lead to the permanent deformation and failure of the material if not properly accounted for in design considerations. Creep analysis is vital in engineering to understand material behavior under sustained loads and high temperatures. It enables predicting deformation and potential damage, ensuring safe and reliable structures. Industries like power generation and aerospace benefit from considering creep for long-term safety and durability of components. In this training package, you will learn about Creep phenomenon and its related matters; you will learn several methods to estimate the creep life of a system’s components, such as Larson-Miller; moreover, all Abaqus models for the creep simulation such as Time-Hardening law and Strain-Hardening law will be explained along with Creep subroutine; also, there would be practical examples to teach you how to do these simulations.

Script to transfer load from CDF to structural model in Abaqus

Notice: This package will be available 1 month after purchase in your dashboard. FEA offers various loading types, such as force, pressure, and temperature, which can be applied to different parts of an object, such as points, surfaces, edges, nodes, and elements. Therefore, applying accurate loading conditions on these features is necessary for reliable simulation results and the safe design of structures. Sometimes, the loading conditions are obtained by another analysis, such as CFD, and need to be transferred and applied to the structural model for the structural analysis; during this transfer, the loads might not be appropriately applied to the model, especially when the loads are complicated like the pressure profile of a space rocket. So in this package, a Python script is presented to solve this issue and transfer the loads properly to the structural model.
