Abaqus 6.11 offers new capabilities and 100 customer-requested enhancements
20 May 2011
Dassault Systèmes has announced the availability of new nonlinear structural optimisation, coupled multiphysics, and high-performance computing technology in Abaqus 6.11, the unified FEA product suite from SIMULIA. With new capabilities and more than 100 customer-requested enhancements, Abaqus 6.11 allows users to explore the real-world physical behavior of products and materials, in order to improve performance, reliability and safety, while reducing development time and costs.
“Meeting our customers’ demands to simulate the true-to-life behavior of their products drives our strategy of developing the most innovative and robust realistic simulation solutions possible,” says Pat Cadrin, director of product management, SIMULIA, Dassault Systèmes.
“With Abaqus 6.11, we have delivered new capabilities that allow users to analyze a broader range of multiphysics problems, leverage the latest high performance computing technologies, and accelerate the optimization of their designs. This release clearly demonstrates our commitment to enabling our customers to be more productive and efficient, and therefore more competitive in their race-to-market.”
Abaqus 6.11 marks the first release of the Abaqus Topology Optimization Module (ATOM). This add-on product enables Abaqus users to perform topology and shape optimization for single parts and assemblies, while taking into account large deformation, material nonlinearity and contact. The application also introduces new electromagnetics solver technology for problems involving time-harmonic eddy current analysis, such as the hardening of a bearing surface due to induction. In addition, this release provides a new smoothed particle hydrodynamics capability for modelling violent free-surface flows, such as fluid sloshing.
