Abaqus is software in the field of computer-Aided Engineering (CAE). It is also known as Abaqus FEA, SIMULIA Abaqus FEA and ABAQUS. Abaqus is software which provide solution for Finite Element Analysis and Computer-Aided Engineering. Abaqus software available in 1978. Abaqus name and logo centered on Abacus Calculation Tool.

Abaqus software is divided into five main segment products:
  • Abaqus CAE
  • Abaqus Standard
  • Abaqus Explicit
  • Abaqus CFD
  • Abaqus Electromagnetic

Abaqus is now acquired by Dassault System. Abaqus released Abaqus 6.14 on November 2014. Abaqus is developed by ABAQUS Inc. Abaqus is available for Windows and Linux operating system. It is available in both 32-bit and 64-bit version. Abaqus software use python language for scripting and customization. Abaqus CAE use fox-toolkit in GUI development.

Abaqus software provide solution for various industry like:
  • Aerospace
  • Automotive
  • Industrial manufactured products

Abaqus software mostly popular in academic and research institute because ability in material modeling capability and software ability to customized.
Abaqus software offer various Multiphysics expertise like:
  • Linear and Non-Linear
  • Coupled Physics
  • CFD
  • Thermal-electrical
  • Electromagnetic
  • Smoothed particle hydrodynamic
  • Crack, Impact and Crash problems
  • Coupled Acoustics-Structural
  • Piezoelectric
  • Structural
  • Production-Level simulations which need multiple fields to be coupled.

At start, Abaqus software provide solution for Non-Linear problems, but software is extended to material models range such as elastomeric material ability. Like every CAE software which provide Finite Element Analysis consist of 3 steps: Pre-processing, Processing and Post-processing.
  • Pre-processing or modeling – it involves cad models, boundary conditions applied at cad model according to problem.
  • Processing – it involve method used for solving FEM equations, monitoring solution and provide output file for solution.
  • Post-processing – it involve generating report whole problem, image of charts, contours and tables and animation video.

Dassault system also provide Abaqus software for CATIA for addition advanced simulation capabilities.
Abaqus CAE – Abaqus CAE has whole Abaqus environment which is used for modeling and analysis of CAD model and visualize the result and also had module of Abaqus Viewer. Abaqus Standard – Abaqus Standard is standard version of Abaqus finite-Element Analyzer. Abaqus Explicit – Abaqus Explicit is special Finite-Element Analyzer which solve highly Non-Linear problems with complex contacts under loads. Abaqus CFD – Abaqus CFD offer complex and developed CFD abilities to solve fluid dynamics problems. Abaqus Electromagnetic – Abaqus Electromagnetic offers FEA electromagnetic abilities to solve complex electromagnetic problems.
