This tutorial teaches how optimize topology of a model in ABAQUS. Structural optimization is an iterative process that helps to improve designs and produce parts and components that are lightweight, strong and long-lasting. Topology optimization begins with an initial design, which is assumed to be the maximum physical extent of the component, and determines a new material distribution by changing the density and the stiffness of the elements in the initial design while continuing to satisfy the optimization constraints. In this package different workshops to implement topology optimization are used.
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, etc. You have certainly tried to define the properties of materials or geometry based on available features in the software, but sometimes you need to code on your own to define some complex issues. Now, here is your solution. This full tutorial package includes 3 training packages that help you to learn how to use Python scripting in Abaqus software. This is likewise the most comprehensive tutorial for the script, and it is appropriate for beginners to advanced users.
