In the present Abaqus tutorial for civil engineering package, we have presented all the software skills that a civil engineer needs when he wants to use his/her engineering knowledge in computer-aided designing. Abaqus tutorial for civil engineering covers all you need to simulate concrete, reinforcements, buckling, frequency, damage, composite, cohesive and more topics. You can download the syllabus of this package here.
If you need common industrial simulations in the fields of forming, fracture, explosion, impact, etc., this package can provide you with comprehensive training along with an instructional video file and software file. You can quickly meet your educational needs in learning the elementary and intermediate level of Abaqus software using this package.
In this package, you can get comprehensive training of the following very useful four subroutines at a lower cost. In this package, more than 9 hours of practical training in the form of videos, PowerPoint, and workshops are provided. During the years of our activities, many students and professors have received these 5 practical packages from us, and we decided to offer this popular package in the form of the “Essential Package” at a reasonable price. We assure you that by providing this package, you will be answered to how to define the properties of complex materials or complex loads and contacts very quickly and will save you a lot of time. Because in the training workshops of these packages, there are several practical examples for using these subroutines that can make you a professional in writing them quickly.
If you are a graduate or Ph.D. student, if you are a university professor or an expert engineer in the industry who deals with simulation software, you are definitely familiar with the limitations of this software in defining the material properties, loading or meshing, interaction properties, and etc. You have certainly tried to define the properties of materials based on advanced fracture theories in finite element software and are familiar with their limitations and problems. Now, here is your solution. Start writing subroutines in finite element software and overcome the limitations. With the tutorials in the Golden Package, you will learn how to write 8 subroutines in Abaqus software professionally.
DFLUX subroutine (VDFLUX Subroutine) is used for thermal loading in various body flux and surface flux states in heat transfer and temperature displacement solvers when flux load is a function of time, place, or other parameters. In this package, you will learn “when do you need to use this subroutine?”, “how to use the DFLUX subroutine”, “what is the difference between DFLUX & VDFLUX?”, “how to convert DFLUX to VDFLUX and vice versa?”, and “How to use it in an example?”. Three workshops are presented so you can learn all these stuff in action: Simulation of welding between two plate with DFLUX subroutine, Simulation of Arc welding between two tube with DFLUX, and Simulation of different types of functional heat flux(Body-surface-Element) in plate with Johnson-cook plasticity with VDFLUX subroutine(Thermomechanical Analysis).
This tutorial teaches how to simulate damage in 3d continuum composite materials in ABAQUS. As you know, Abaqus does not have any material model for 3d composite materials. So, the user needs to write a customized subroutine to simulate damage initiation and progressive damage for composite materials in ABAQUS. In this package, one of the most practical damage initiation criteria (Hashin) is used to detect failure. It should be mentioned that this subroutine includes gradual progressive damage based on the energy method. This complex subroutine could be used for static and dynamic problems.
This training package helps Abaqus users to prepare complex UMAT and VUMAT subroutines. This Abaqus UMAT tutorial package is suitable for those who are familiar with subroutine or want to learn UMAT/VUMAT subroutine Professionally. Equations for computational plasticity based on kinematic stiffness are also discussed. In addition, metal damage has been implemented based on Johnson Cook's model. Watch Demo
As a professional Abaqus user, you have probably faced cases where you have to move meshes and elements during analysis. For example, there is such a need in the wearing process. In addition, to define the properties of materials based on advanced theories of elasticity or plasticity, you need programming within the software. Sometimes you may need to model different types of cohesive or many types of composite materials based on various methods of composite damage. In all these cases, be sure that the professional package will answer you. This package is designed and prepared for you who are professionals and work on the edge of knowledge topics in the field of mechanical engineering and damage mechanics. Sometimes you may need to use user-defined elements and change element configuration based on theories that you are using; for instance, it is needed to add more integration points in elements. In this case, you can use the UEL package in the “Professional Package”.
UEL stands for User-defined Elements. When you have a finite element analysis that requires an element type that doesn't exist in the Abaqus element library, you must write a UEL subroutine. Or, when you want to define various element shape functions, the UEL would be the best choice. This subroutine is one of the most sophisticated in the Abaqus and is intended for advanced users. With this tutorial package, you can become an advanced user and learn how to write such a complex subroutine. This package contains two workshops: writing a UEL subroutine for a planar beam element with nonlinear section behavior and writing a UEL subroutine for a beam element with specific boundary conditions and loading.

The forming in Abaqus is one of the most important manufacturing processes that can be used for producing different components. In this package, you will learn how to simulate the forming process in Abaqus and you can see the behavior of the material along this process. This package contains some examples that cover rolling, hydroforming, extrusion, ECAP, Cold forging, and drilling processes.
