How does it Work?

SIMULIA Structural Analysis Solutions

Structural analysis uses the Finite Element Method (FEM) and related technologies to understand how products and assemblies behave under real-world loading and temperature conditions. The SIMULIA portfolio in the structure's domain includes Abaqus, fe-safe, and Tosca structure technologies.

Abaqus is a market and technology-leader in linear and nonlinear finite element analysis. Both implicit and explicit solution techniques are available and are complementary.

These technologies are well known for their power, flexibility, feature set, and solution performance on modern HPC compute architectures including GPUs and Cloud.


“Using simulation to predict that weight and stiffness ahead of time reduced the number of make-and break cycles necessary to get where we needed to be.”

Solution Technology for Static and Low-Speed Dynamic Events

Abaqus standard is a solution catered to static and low-speed dynamic events where highly accurate stress solutions are most important.

Within a single simulation, users can analyze the model in the time and frequency domain. See a product move with or without stresses of pre-stressed natural frequencies.



Complete Solutions for Realistic Simulation

Abaqus/Explicit is a finite element analysis product designed for short-term transient dynamic events and nonlinear behavior in areas such as consumer electronics drop testing, vehicle crashworthiness, and ballistic impact.

Because this product is intended for usage in industrial contexts, its architecture prioritizes usability, dependability, and efficiency.




Complete Solution for Abaqus Finite Element Modeling, Visualization, and Process Automation

Abaqus/CAE is a user interface that combines modeling, analysis, job management, and result visualization in an easy-to-use environment. Abaqus/CAE allows users to create, edit, monitor, diagnose, and visualize advanced Abaqus analyses quickly and effectively.

This intuitive interface allows users to create geometry, import CAD models for meshing, or integrate geometry-based meshes that do not have associated CAD geometry.
