Join our Coupled Analysis Webinar

Posted by Stephanie

February’s webinar will cover an introduction to sequentially coupled analyses. It will be held on Friday 24th February.

This webinar will present various methods for transferring results between Abaqus analyses or between Abaqus and a third-party software. These methods are particularly useful to perform sequentially coupled multi-physics simulations such as thermal-structural analysis or fluid structure interaction. They can also be applied when an analysis requires the use of both solvers: Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit, such as the analysis of the residual strength after impact.
