Выход Abaqus for CATIA V5 R18 SP4 от Dassault Systems

Компания Dassault Systems анонсировала выход новой версии программной системы Abaqus for CATIA V5 R18 SP4. С ее помощью возможно провести как базовый анализ модели, так и сложное моделирование нелинейного контактного взаимодействия, решить температурные задачи или мультидисциплинарные задачи. Удобную и быструю работу обеспечивает инновационный пользовательский интерфейс CATIA V5.

Dassault Systems (DS) (Nasdaq: DASTY; Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced the availability of Abaqus for CATIA V5 R18 SP4 from its SIMULIA brand for realistic simulation. This latest release of Abaqus for CATIA V5 provides improved usability and robust design analysis capabilities directly in CATIA V5 to accelerate the product development process.

Abaqus for CATIA V5’s advanced simulation capabilities accelerate and improve product performance evaluation within the CATIA V5 environment. In this electronic device example, design engineers can use associative and rules-based modeling capabilities in CATIA

and then employ advanced Abaqus analysis to evaluate realistic design behavior in relation to established performance specifications

“Using realistic simulation in the design phase has enabled us to cut our time to market for a new latch significantly,” says Thomas Waldmann, manager of the Technical Analysis and Simulation department at Kiekert, a global supplier of automotive door latches. “Strength testing of automobile door latches is fundamental for us, but physical testing is slow and does not realize the whole job. We began our linear analysis of door latches with finite-element calculations inside CATIA. By adding Abaqus for CATIA V5 we are able to perform more complex nonlinear contact simulation, which is what we need for accurate strength testing in three dimensions.”

This cooling impeller is rotating at 10,000 RPM, causing the blades to flatten slightly while inducing large stresses at the bases of the blades

Abaqus for CATIA enables design engineers to evaluate the effect of this type of loading on the structure’s natural frequencies as a result of stress stiffening and changes to the geometry during the design phase

“SIMULIA is dedicated to delivering a scalable suite of design analysis products that permit our customers to start with basic design analysis and add functionality such as nonlinear contact, thermal analysis, or coupled multiphysics as needed,” states Steve Crowley, director of SIMULIA product management for Dassault Systems. “This release of Abaqus for CATIA V5 continues our strategy of delivering scalable analysis solutions that allow realistic simulation to be used throughout the product lifecycle.”

Using Abaqus for CATIA V5, expert analysts can define and deploy approved analysis workflows for use across the enterprise. This capability enables design and engineering teams to improve collaboration while evaluating design performance through the use of common FEA models, technology, and methods that are synchronized with their CATIA V5 design.

New and Enhanced Capabilities

  • Natural frequency analysis on the unloaded structure, or after any level of loading
  • Enhanced precision in setting up models involving contact—nodal adjustments made by the Abaqus solver can be previewed in the user interface
  • Improved CATIA Octree meshing to provide a higher level of element quality when working with Abaqus models
  • Element quality checks implemented in CATIA specifically for Abaqus users

A free one-hour webinar on Deploying Analysis Workflows with Abaqus for CATIA V5 will be held on April 8th and 10th. Register at
