Simulia’s Abaqus 6.10 provides FEA and multiphysics capabilities for realistic simulation. CFD ability enables fluid-structure interaction, while over 100 enhancements improve modeling, performance, usability, visualization, multiphysics, and core mechanics. Users can perform coupled physics simulations, such as thermal analysis of electronic systems undergoing convection cooling, or transient thermal analysis of engine exhaust systems, with Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit. Improvements in the direct co-simulation coupling interface allow users to couple applications directly with Abaqus. Additionally, enhancements to the extended finite-element method improve the process for modeling fracture of composite materials.
