Fracture and failure modeling allows for product designs that maximize the safe operating life of structural components. Abaqus offers many capabilities that enable fracture and failure modeling. This seminar provides a detailed discussion of these capabilities. Objectives Upon completion of this course you will be able to: - Use proper modeling techniques for capturing crack-tip singularities in fracture mechanics problems - Use Abaqus/CAE to create meshes appropriate for fracture studies - Calculate stress intensity factors and contour integrals around a crack tip - Simulate material damage and failure - Simulate crack growth using cohesive behavior, VCCT, and XFEM - Simulate low-cycle fatigue crack growth
VIAS3D reserves the right to cancel a course with or without reason. In such cases, any registration fees and payments for any other costs already paid to VIAS3D will be refunded in full, or VIAS3D can provide a credit for any future class within one year from the first day of the originally scheduled Training.
If a paid registrant cancels a course reservation two weeks or more before the course start date, 50% of the fee will be refunded, or a full credit will be issued that can be used for a future course within one year from the original start date of the course.
No refund will be given for cancellations made less than two weeks before the course start date.
