Technology Seminars

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Solutions inside 3DEXPERIENCE

This course provides an introduction to the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) based roles available in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Topics such as geometry preparation, meshing, preprocessing, result visualization, and CAD-CFD integration will be addressed during this seminar. The goal of this course is to educate attendees about the key aspects of user interface, workflow, and core functionalities of CFD applications offered by 3DEXPERIENCE.

Topology Optimization using Tosca for Abaqus

When used in combination with finite element analyses, topology optimization techniques can help you improve your designs to produce lightweight, strong and durable components. In addition, using structural optimization techniques can significantly reduce the number of design iterations required during a product development process. This leads to huge savings in tooling costs and vastly reduces the time to market for the product.

The objective of this seminar is to introduce users to the topology optimization capabilities available in “Tosca for Abaqus.” An easy to use interface native to Abaqus/CAE is available for the setup, execution, monitoring and post-processing of topology optimization problems. In combination with Abaqus analysis products, Tosca for Abaqus offers an unparalleled structural optimization capability for linear and highly nonlinear problems.

Attendees will leave the course with an understanding of how to apply topology optimization techniques to a structural finite element analysis including setting up design volumes, defining simulation objectives and constraints to consider manufacturing and structural requirements. They will be able to post-process and interpret the results of the simulation to make design recommendations or design alternatives.

Application Seminars

Deep Dive into Simulation on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

This training course explores the simulation apps on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. Attendees will discover the range of available simulation tools and how these are integrated into the online, social collaboration environment provided by the platform. Targeted at simulation specialists and methods developers, this course will demonstrate how authoring and managing simulation data on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps to reduce time spent on low value added tasks, to capture and democratize simulation best-practice, to extract the maximum value from your generated intellectual property, and to communicate the value of what you do to everyone. These items will be shown through detailed step-by-step technical workflows that attendees will be able to reproduce and replicate in their own environment.

Attendees will leave the course with a complete understanding of the function of the platform, how the platform facilitates collaboration between analysts and others, what technology is available on the platform, how that technology works together, what workflows are enabled by the platform, how to capture, share, & publish those workflows for others, and how simulation on the platform increases the value and reach of simulation activities.

Analyzing Drivetrains using SIMULIA Simpack Multibody Simulation

Analyzing the dynamics of drivetrains is a typical application area for Multibody Simulation (MBS). The SIMULIA Multibody Simulation software Simpack enables engineers to generate and solve virtual 3D models in order to predict and visualize motion, coupling forces, and stresses. This course will focus on providing an overview of the technology available in Simpack for analyzing drivetrains. This overview will be underlined by application examples like a drivetrain resonance analysis of a gearbox, flexible gears, and stress and durability analysis of components. In these application examples, attendees will also discover how Simpack interoperates with Abaqus and fe-safe. This course will be of particular interest to users in the Transportation & Mobility and Industrial Equipment industries. Users in other industries responsible for drivetrain simulation will also benefit.

Attendees will come away from the course with a firm understanding of the technology and applicability of Simpack for drivetrain analysis and the value of Multibody Simulation as an application area together with FEA and other Dassault Systèmes technology.

Hands-on Training Courses

Hands-on with Composites Simulation: Advanced Composite Materials Analysis - Damage and Multiscale

Composite materials are used in many industries, across a range of design applications, because of their high stiffness-to-weight ratios and the ability to tailor their response as needed. This course aims to introduce users to the capabilities in Abaqus enabling effective modeling of composite materials with special emphasis on the topic of multiscale material modeling and damage. The course covers the following topics: using detailed modeling of the microscopic behavior to determine the behavior of composite materials, defining anisotropic elasticity with Hookean models for combining the fiber-matrix response, defining composite layups using Abaqus/CAE, achieving the correct material orientation of the layers of composite shells and solid elements, as well as recent enhancements in the technical capabilities focused on multiscale material modeling and damage.

Although the course content is a subset of the standard Analysis of Composite Materials With Abaqus course, attendees will receive the full set of lecture notes from the standard course. This course material has additionally been updated with new material on multiscale modeling and damage based on new features in the Abaqus product suite. Attendees will be asked to download and install the Abaqus Student Edition on their personal laptops prior to the course in order to fully participate in the hands-on exercises.

Hands-on with Acoustics and Linear Dynamics with Abaqus: Effective Solution of Structural Vibration Problems

Linear dynamics and acoustics simulation has become standard practice in many industries to increase user comfort, increase product efficiency, decrease fatigue, and improve the overall experience with engineering products by consumers. This course introduces the user to the algorithms and methods used to study linear dynamic problems with Abaqus/Standard. Additional attention will be devoted to acoustics simulation and noise. In this course, attendees will learn how to extract eigenmodes about a certain frequency, maximize the convergence rate during eigenvalue extraction, determine whether the number of extracted eigenmodes is sufficient to represent the structure's response adequately, perform transient, steady-state, response spectrum and random response analyses using the eigenmodes, use multiple base motions, and apply damping in linear problems for structures and solids, including internal and external acoustics. Hands-on exercises will reinforce the fundamental concepts presented in the lectures.
