This guide contains detailed examples designed to illustrate the approaches and decisions needed to perform meaningful linear and nonlinear analysis.
Typical cases are large motion of an elastic-plastic pipe hitting a rigid wall; inelastic buckling collapse of a thin-walled elbow; explosive loading of an elastic, viscoplastic thin ring; consolidation under a footing; buckling of a composite shell with a hole; and deep drawing of a metal sheet.
This manual is a complete reference for all of the capabilities of both Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit and contains a description of the elements, material models, procedures, input specifications, etc.
Usage information is provided for both the keyword and the Abaqus/CAE interfaces.
The manual takes you through the process of understanding the Python programming language and the Abaqus Scripting Interface.
