Multi physics technologies

CEL – Coupled Eularian Lagrangian

This technology expands the scope of Abaqus beyond the usual finite element domain, allowing, complex fluid structural interaction problems and other challenges to be solved. CEL combines fluid domains with normal explicit structural elements.

SPH – Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics

SPH uses a mesh free particle approach, where objects can be be either fluid or solid. These particles can interact with traditional finite element models. This approach allows complex FSI, Fluid Structure Interactions to be modelled, as well as high strain and other extreme events that challenge more traditional modelling techniques. This technology can be used for:  Birdstrikes, ballistics, hydrodynamic loadings, forming, mixing, forging, cutting, explosions.

DEM – Discrete Element Modelling

DEM is used for modelling of interactions between large numbers of individual particles. The particles are treated as rigid particles. DEM is different from SPH which models continuum materials.
This technology can be used for stone and rock handling, sorting devices for granular materials and mixers.

Scalable solution speed

The Abaqus software supports working on HPC environments. Many challenges need additional computation power to solve in a useful timeframe. Abaqus scales very effectively until 264 CPU processors. Additional to that, Abaqus supports GPGPU as well, to speed up your simulations even further. To utilize the amount of CPU and GPGPU cores, Abaqus uses a token system.
