ABAQUS is general-purpose package for numerical solutions of partial differential equations with applications in mechanical, structural, civil, biomedical, and related engineering applications. It covers geometry modelling, material property, meshing, boundary conditions, etc. to achieve a complete prediction for engineering. ABAQUS/CAE is a complete ABAQUS environment that provides a simple, consistent interface for creating, submitting, monitoring, and evaluating results from ABAQUS/Standard and ABAQUS/Explicit simulations. It is an easy-to-use environment for new users.
Aims of the group
ABAQUS Special Interest Group (SIG) was established/set up in 2009. It is a special interest group for ABAQUS users in the University of Birmingham, UK. The group includes many experienced experts who have used ABAQUS for many years. Of course, there are also many new ABAQUS users joining the ABAQUS SIG every year. ABAQUS SIG provides a community for different levels of ABAQUS users for communicating and sharing their knowledge and experience with each other about using ABAQUS for Finite Element modelling in their research. Meanwhile, Birmingham ABAQUS users can obtain answers by raising questions in the ABAQUS SIG.
The ABAQUS SIG mailing list is an efficient approach to connect the Birmingham ABAQUS users together, to register please click here for more information ( or see Contact us ).
