On behalf of Intrinsys Ltd and Dassault Systèmes, we are pleased to provide you with this unique opportunity to attend this free one-day seminar: Solving Contact Problems in Abaqus.

Don't miss the opportunity to attend this free one day seminar presented by SIMULIA and Intrinsys technical specialists. By attending this seminar you will gain insight into Abaqus solutions for solving contact problems and much more!

Understanding the interaction between bodies is essential for solving many engineering problems. Manufacturing processes, gears, bearings, seals and dynamic impact events all involve contact. Engineers have developed many techniques and guidelines for solving challenging contact problems. This seminar teaches participants how to setup and deal with contact problems in detail.

This seminar will review the various capabilities within Abaqus for the modelling of contact problems, application scenarios, and output & diagnostics tools. The capabilities will be illustrated through the demonstration of a number of simulation workflows.
