Two new methods are available in Abaqus to couple analyses performed at different scales: mean field homogenisation (MFH) and FE-based Representative Volume Element (RVE). The objective is to predict the mechanical response of a structure using data from a smaller scale. These methods are particularly useful when studying complex materials or structures such as composite materials or lattice structures.
In this webinar, we will present the two methods:
– MFH, that uses an analytical calculation to describe the relationship between the scales and
– FE-RVE, that uses a FE model of the microstructure.
We will also look at the micromechanics plug-in that facilitates the generation of FE-RVE models and calculates the homogenised properties of a material that can then be used at the macro scale.
The “Online Webinar Training: Multiscale Modelling with Abaqus” webinar is a paid online training for existing customers. Other companies can sign up and receive a free webinar once. The costs for 10 Online Webinar Training Sessions during the year are EUR 1.175,00.
The link for the online event will be sent just one week before the actual date so if you register, please note it in your agenda already.
