Dassault Systemes announces the availability of Abaqus 6.8, its unified finite element analysis (FEA) software suite from SIMULIA. Engineers, designers, researchers, and scientists use Abaqus to lower costs and reduce cycle times through the realistic simulation of stress, impact, crush, fluid-structure interaction, thermal dynamics, and other complex behaviors of products, materials, and processes.
• Provides capabilities in core areas, including modeling and results visualization, structural analysis, composites failure, general contact, computing performance, and multiphysics
• Composites analysis capabilities enable efficient simulation of the behavior of composite crack propagation, delamination and possible failure
• Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian (CEL) multiphysics capability allows industrial equipment manufacturers to predict loads on earth-moving equipment during soil excavation
