Upcoming Webinar: Introduction to Subroutines

April 18, 2016

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

Abaqus is a complete analysis package, enabling you to satisfy all your everyday simulation needs, and more!

In addition to the wide range of built in analysis options available, you can extend your capabilities by introducing additional functionality using user subroutines. User subroutines are custom written Fortran or C codes, that interact with the solver, allowing you to include many additional features to the code. These can be relatively simple, such as moving loads or temperature dependent heat generation or complex, such as the use of custom material behaviours or element types.

This webinar aims to provide an introduction into the world of using subroutines in Abaqus. The topics addressed are the following:

  • Automation and programming in Abaqus
  • Installation and setup, including common faults
  • Fortran and C for absolute beginners
  • Subroutine examples

This webinar is recommended for advanced users who have identified bottlenecks in their workflow and wish to expand analysis capabilities by using subroutines in Abaqus. There is also good value for beginners and managers getting knowledge about Abaqus, or evaluating advanced capabilities.

About the Presenter: David Sziroczak, Senior Engineer at Intrinsys

David is extensively utilised to develop new processes for the wider application of FEA and is most happy when looking into challenging applications where he can push the software to its limits.

Recently David has been working on a project to help a customer develop a new technique to model heat transfer within rare earth magnets.  David recently presented a paper on the subject of "Dynamic Stress Analysis of a Four Bar Linkage using Multi-Body Dynamics". David is currently working towards his PhD at Cranfield University, where Intrinsys have strong academic links, sponsor students and provide research projects.
