About the course
Abaqus makes extensive use of Python; a powerful, object-oriented scripting language that is used widely by organizations throughout the world. Python has been embedded within the Abaqus software products. The language has been extended to include a rich set of commands that are well suited for the daily tasks of a finite element analyst. These extensions are referred to as the Abaqus Scripting Interface (ASI).

The Abaqus Scripting Interface may be used by the finite element analyst at many different levels. Scripts can be written as stand-alone utilities, or can be written to integrate the Abaqus products with other codes. At a basic level, scripts may be used to automate repetitive tasks such as the creation of results plots from a collection of output files. With some experience, users may actually extend the functionality of the Abaqus products. Advanced users may work with SIMULIA affiliates to customize the graphical user interface of the Abaqus interactive products (Abaqus/CAE and Abaqus/Viewer).

Course objective
This seminar covers basic usage of the Abaqus Scripting Interface and Python’s syntax. It includes numerous hands-on exercises for the student to learn to automate tasks that are common to most analysts.

This course covers the following topics:
• Write simple scripts to automate pre- and postprocessing tasks and improve productivity
• Read and write data from/to the .cae and .odb files
• Understand and explore the Abaqus object model
• Build simple GUI plug-ins using the Really Simple GUI (RSG) framework
• Troubleshoot and debug scripts
• Understand Python’s applicability as a powerful scripting language for a wide variety of tasks

Recommended prerequisites
In order for the training to be effective, all students should have some basic familiarity with the Abaqus products including Abaqus/Viewer and Abaqus/Standard or Abaqus/Explicit. Familiarity with Abaqus/CAE is very helpful. Students should also have some experience using at least one computer programming language, text editing, and should be proficient with basic operating system tasks such as file copying/deleting, creating/modifying environment variables, etc.

Note: Advanced Abaqus Scripting is a recommended subsequent course for those interested in attaining even deeper proficiency in both Python and the Abaqus Scripting Interface.

Who should attend
We believe every Abaqus user should be familiar with the ASI. Productivity gains can be realized at many levels; from simple scripts that automate tedious tasks to large applications with custom user interfaces. This course is recommended for all Abaqus users who wish to improve their productivity using scripting.

If you are an expert Abaqus user, you might want to consider following any of the advanced courses.

The cost for this online training are EUR 980,00 per person. Payment / PO should be received before the start of the training.
