Upcoming Webinar: Introduction to Linear Dynamics

January 22, 2016

This webinar is now closed. You can view the webinar recording here.

A static Finite Element Analysis is sufficient if you are only interested in the long-term response of a structure to applied loads. However, if the duration of the applied load is short - such as in an earthquake - or if the loading is dynamic in nature - such as that from rotating machinery - you need to perform a dynamic analysis.

In this webinar we will present the linear dynamic analysis process in Abaqus/Standard. You will learn:

  • What options are available for linear dynamic analysis in Abaqus
  • How to build an effective finite element model for linear dynamic analysis utilising the built-in feature set available in Abaqus Standard and Abaqus CAE
  • The limits of the available methods and how to choose which is applicable to your application. What data is required to produce a useful analysis
  • Analysis solutions discussed will include, natural frequency extraction (modal analysis,) and steady state dynamics (frequency response.)

This webinar is intended for finite element analysis beginners wanting to learn how to effectively use the capability of Abaqus for linear dynamic analysis; and for engineering managers who wish to understand how dynamic analysis in Abaqus may improve the understanding of their products and improve their design processes.
