Modeling Contact and Resolving Convergence Issues with Abaqus

This 3-day course provides an in-depth discussion on solving nonlinear problems in Abaqus/Standard with an emphasis on modeling and convergence-related issues for contact. Engineers at Abaqus have developed many techniques and guidelines for solving challenging contact problems. Convergence issues related to complicated material models and geometrically unstable behavior are also covered. Many years of practical experience in understanding and resolving convergence issues have been condensed into this course. Objectives Upon completion of this course you will be able to: - 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 - Understand how nonlinear problems are solved in Abaqus - Develop Abaqus models that will converge - Identify modeling errors that cause models to experience convergence difficulties Who Should Attend: Simulation Analysts
