Complete Solution for Abaqus Finite Element Simulation and Modeling, Visualization, and Process Automation

With Abaqus/CAE, you can easily create, edit, monitor, diagnose, and visualize simulations using the advanced Abaqus analyses. The intuitive, easy to use interface integrates modelling, dynamic analysis, and results visualisation in a single environment. This enables users to quickly learn the software and become highly productive. Abaqus/CAE supports familiar interactive computer-aided engineering concepts such as feature-based, parametric modeling, interactive and scripted operation, and GUI customization.


The implicit solver for non-linear static and low speed dynamic events

Abaqus/Standard is ideal for static and low-speed dynamic events where highly accurate stress solutions are important. Within a single simulation, it is possible to analyse a model both in the time and frequency domain. Abaqus/Standard is supported within the Abaqus/CAE modelling environment for all common pre and post processing needs. The results at any point within an Abaqus/Standard run can be used as the starting conditions for continuation in Abaqus/Explicit. Similarly, an analysis that starts in Abaqus/Explicit can be continued in Abaqus/Standard.


The explicit solver for fast transient dynamic events

Abaqus/Explicit is ideal for analyses where high-speed, non-linear, transient response dominates the solution. The ability of Abaqus/Explicit to effectively handle severely non-linear behaviour such as contact, makes it very attractive for the simulation of many quasi-static events, such as rolling of hot metal and slow crushing of energy absorbing devices. The results at any point within an Abaqus/Explicit run can be used as the starting conditions for continuation in Abaqus/Standard. Similarly, an analysis that starts in Abaqus/Standard can be continued in Abaqus/Explicit.

Abaqus Associative Interfaces

Be connected with your 3DCAD environment

  • Abaqus Associative Interface – CATIA V5
    Use CATIA V5 Parts and Products in CAE. Materials and publications can be imported to the Abaqus model.  file formats like .CATPart and .CATProduct files can be imported in CAE as well.
  • Abaqus Associative Interface – SolidWorks
    Use SolidWorks parts and assemblies in Abaqus/CAE. Change the model in SolidWorks and revisions are pushed to CAE without loss of analysis features which were applied earlier to the Abaqus model.

Abaqus Flexible Licensing

A flexible token-based licensing system for concurrent users and speeding up Simulations by running on multiple cores

  • Buy or Lease: Purchase Abaqus outright, or choose a yearly or quarterly lease and add tokens during the contract to fulfill your Simulation needs.
  • Flexible scalability: Use tokens to run on additional cores. If you are in a need for extra simulation power, just order additional tokens. 
  • Pricing model: The Abaqus pricing model not based on functionality, but on using X number of CPU & GPU Cores, and concurrent number of users.
