What’s new in Abaqus explicit 2019

This year 2019 Abaqus release has seen number of potential enhancements in Abaqus explicit. Some are general purpose while others are tied to specific procedure and application. Let’s have a look at what’s new in the explicit basket. Lumped Kinetic Molecular model: This model has been developed to simulate behavior of gases that can be of much use in air

Combinatorial method in Abaqus friction modeling

In this article we are going to discuss an advanced friction modeling technique in Abaqus. It is based on combination rules that allows solver to compute effective friction interaction based on two contacting surfaces with different coefficients of friction. As an example, look at the following table: If someone asks: “what is the coefficient of friction of steel?” There really
