Different Techniques for Meshing in Abaqus

 180.0
(1)
This package introduces different meshing techniques in Abaqus. In finite element analysis, a mesh refers to the division of a physical domain into smaller, interconnected subdomains called elements. The purpose of meshing is to approximate the behavior of a continuous system by representing it as a collection of discrete elements. Meshing is of utmost importance in finite element analysis as it determines the accuracy and reliability of the numerical solution. Through this tutorial, initially, the mesh and related terms associated with meshing are declared. Abaqus mesh module and meshing process are introduced. Then, two different meshing methodologies: Top-down and Bottom-up with meshing techniques available for each one of them are completely explained. Some of the advanced meshing techniques and edit mesh toolset are also included. The consideration of mesh verification as the final step in the meshing process, along with its criteria, is undertaken. All the tips and theories determined in this tutorial are implemented in Abaqus/CAE as a workshop to mesh several parts. This package intends to take your ability to mesh different parts to a higher level.

Simulation of shape control by piezoelectric in Abaqus

 290.0
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 particle swarm 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 particle swarm optimization algorithm, linking Abaqus and MATLAB, and how to use these tools for shape control. Notice: Software files and A full PDF guideline (Problem description, theory, ...) are available; Videos are coming soon.

Sometimes, there is a need to simulate large or complex models in Abaqus, such as airplanes and cars. Generally, models with more than 5 million variables or take at least 12 hours to analyze are considered large. Processing such models requires a significant amount of time and energy, in addition to potential issues with modeling, loading, boundary conditions, and more. Therefore, it is necessary to find ways to simplify and accelerate the analysis of such models. In this training package, you will learn various methods to address these challenges. Dealing with large models typically involves simplifying the model, making efficient use of system resources, and minimizing CPU time. These techniques are explained in detail here. Additionally, you will be taught various techniques to aid in the management of large models, including submodeling, history output filtering, restart functionality, and parts and assemblies.

Tunnel excavation simulation using TBM in Abaqus

 49.0
(1)
Notice: This package will be available one week after purchase. Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) are advanced construction equipment used to excavate tunnels with efficiency and precision. These massive machines consist of a rotating cutting wheel equipped with disc cutters, which excavate the soil or rock, and a conveyor system that removes the excavated material from the tunnel. TBMs play a crucial role in various industries, including transportation, mining, and underground infrastructure development. TBM simulation is of utmost importance in the planning and execution of tunneling projects. It allows engineers and project managers to evaluate the feasibility of different tunneling methods, optimize the design and operation of TBMs, and predict potential challenges and risks. By simulating the TBM's performance and behavior under various geological conditions, factors such as ground stability, excavation rates, cutter wear, and potential impacts on surrounding structures can be analyzed and mitigated. In this package, you will learn how to do a TBM simulations by several practical examples.
