Modelling Contact and Resolving Convergence Issues with Abaqus

Start Date Days Location Comments Select
Sorry, no sessions are currently scheduled for this course. Please contact us to arrange a suitable training date.

Duration: 3 days

Course Objective
This course provides an in-depth discussion on solving nonlinear problems in Abaqus/Standard with an emphasis on modelling and convergence-related issues for contact. Convergence issues related to complicated material models and geometrically unstable behaviour are also covered.

This course teaches users how to:

  • Understand how nonlinear problems are solved in Abaqus
  • Develop Abaqus models that will converge
  • Identify modelling errors that cause models to experience convergence difficulties
  • Define general contact and contact pairs
  • Define appropriate surfaces (rigid or deformable)
  • Model frictional contact
  • Model large sliding between deformable bodies
  • Resolve overclosures in interference fit problems

The hands-on workshops provide ample opportunity to use the concepts developed in the lectures and to learn how to postprocess the results of a contact analysis. 

Who Should Attend?
This course is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus/Standard.
