Module by module training package of Abaqus
If you are new to Abaqus software and the topic of finite element analysis, you definitely need to get acquainted with the user interface of this software and the general features of each module.
In this software, we perform different simulation steps in the following different modules and at the end, we receive the analysis results from the software solver.
Part Module: You use the Part module to create each part, and you use the Assembly module to assemble instances of the parts.
Property Module: You can use the Property module to perform the following tasks: define materials, define beam section profiles, and define sections, and Assign sections, orientations, normals, and tangents to parts and other features related to defining various properties.
Assembly module: You can use the Assembly module to create and modify the assembly. The model contains only one assembly, which is composed of instances of parts from the model.
Step Module: You can use the Step module to perform the following tasks: create analysis steps, specify output requests, specify adaptive meshing, and specify analysis controls.
Interaction module: You can use the Interaction module to define and manage the following objects: mechanical and thermal interactions between regions of a model, and analysis constraints between regions of a model. Inertia (point mass, rotary inertia, and heat capacitance) on regions of the model, cracks, springs and dashpots.
Load module: You use the Load module to define and manage the following prescribed conditions: loads, boundary conditions, predefined fields, and Load cases.
Mesh module: The Mesh module contains tools that allow you to generate meshes on parts and assemblies created within Abaqus/CAE.
Job module: You can use the Job module to create and manage analysis jobs and to view a basic plot of the analysis results. You can also use the Job module to create and manage adaptivity analyses.
