Join this Tech Talk to learn more about strategies in the context of specific finite-element models that initially have convergence issues.
The Abaqus finite-element solvers are powerful tools which help engineers simulate structures to determine their realistic behaviour under various loading conditions. The really interesting finite-element models exhibit behaviours that can present challenges to the nonlinear solution method employed by Abaqus/Standard. The Abaqus user may be unable to build a satisfactory Abaqus/Standard model for these cases unless they are aware of the techniques for debugging convergence issues.
This Tech Talk will be of interest to Abaqus/Standard users who want to learn debugging strategies. The seminar will present strategies in the context of specific finite-element models that initially have convergence issues. The processes of overcoming the problems will be discussed in some detail. Technical details related to things like hyperelastic materials, dynamic simulation, contact, buckling, etc. will also be discussed.
