New multiphysics technology in Abaqus release 6.10 from SIMULIA
26 May 2010
Dassault Systemes has released Abaqus 6.10, a unified finite element analysis (FEA) and multiphysics product suite for realistic simulation from SIMULIA. The new release delivers on more than 100 customer-requested enhancements for modelling, performance, usability, visualisation, multiphysics, and core mechanics.
Abaqus 6.10 introduces a new multiphysics capability for performing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation. This enables users to perform coupled physics simulations with Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit, such as fluid-structure interaction between human tissue, a medical device and fluid flow; thermal analysis of electronic systems undergoing convection cooling; or transient thermal analysis of engine exhaust systems.
The release also reinforces SIMULIA’s commitment to providing an open multiphysics platform through improvements to its direct co-simulation coupling interface. This capability allows SIMULIA partners and customers to couple their applications directly with Abaqus for best-in-class multiphysics simulation.
With this release, SIMULIA also delivers technology for realistic fracture and failure analysis. Abaqus 6.10 features enhancements to its extended finite element method (XFEM) that improves the process for modelling fracture of composite materials. It also provides dramatic performance improvements for parallel processing of simulations that use XFEM, or the implicit dynamic procedure, allowing more simulations to be performed in less time.
