The new release delivers more than 100 enhancements for modeling, performance, usability, visualization, multiphysics, and core mechanics, according to the company. Abaqus 6.10 introduces a new multiphysics capability for performing computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation. This enables users to perform coupled physics simulations with Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit, such as fluid-structure interaction between human tissue, a medical device, and fluid flow; thermal analysis of electronic systems undergoing convection cooling; or transient thermal analysis of engine exhaust systems.
“In order to simulate performance of engine components in a closer-to-reality environment, we are pleased that Abaqus 6.10 provides the computational fluid dynamic capabilities for fluid-structure interaction which will enable us to perform accurate fluid and solid co-simulations,” says Dr. Fred Yang, technical leader of bearing analysis from Federal-Mogul Powertrain Sealing and Bearings Group USA. “The new solution certainly gives us significant enhancements to explore multiphysics interaction in our designs and optimize our products to reduce engine power loss and lower overall material costs.”
The release also reinforces SIMULIA’s commitment to providing an open multiphysics platform through improvements to its direct co-simulation coupling interface. This capability allows SIMULIA partners and customers to couple their applications directly with Abaqus for multiphysics simulation.
Abaqus 6.10 also features enhancements to its extended finite element method (XFEM) that the company says improves the process for modeling fracture of composite materials. It also provides performance improvements for parallel processing of simulations that use XFEM, or the implicit dynamic procedure.
