Abaqus is a powerful finite element software for engineering simulation, which can solve problems ranging from relatively simple linear analysis to many complex nonlinear problems. Abaqus includes a rich library of cells that can simulate arbitrary geometric shapes. It has various types of material model libraries, which can simulate the performance of typical engineering materials, including metals, rubber, polymer materials, composite materials, reinforced concrete, compressible superelastic foam materials, and geological materials such as soil and rock. As a general-purpose simulation tool, Abaqus can not only solve a large number of structural (stress/displacement) problems, but also simulate many problems in other engineering fields, such as heat conduction, mass diffusion, thermoelectric coupling analysis, acoustic analysis, geotechnical analysis, electromagnetic analysis and Piezoelectric Analysis.

Today, product simulation is often performed by engineering teams using niche simulation tools from different vendors to simulate various design properties. The use of multiple vendor software products creates inefficiencies and high costs. SIMULIA offers an extensible suite of unified analysis products for users with simulation expertise or domain focus, allowing all users to collaborate and seamlessly share simulation data and proven methods without losing information fidelity.

The Abaqus Unified FEA product suite provides powerful and complete solutions to routine and complex engineering problems covering a wide range of industrial applications. In the automation industry, engineering teams are able to account for vehicle full load, dynamic vibration, multi-body systems, impact/crash, nonlinear statics, thermal coupling, and vibration-acoustic coupling through common model data structures and integrated solution techniques. Best-in-class companies are leveraging Abaqus Unified FEA to integrate processes and tools to reduce costs and inefficiencies and gain a competitive advantage.


Abaqus/Standard enables a variety of linear and nonlinear engineering simulations to be implemented efficiently, accurately, and reliably. Extensive analysis capabilities, superior performance, comprehensive user guides, and high-quality first-class technical support make Abaqus/Standard an effective tool for analyzing many engineering problems.


Abaqus/Explicit (explicit integration) provides accurate, powerful and efficient finite element solution techniques for simulating a wide range of dynamic and quasi-static problems. It is suitable for modeling highly nonlinear dynamics and quasi-static analysis (adiabatic effects can be considered), fully coupled transient-displacement analysis, coupled acoustic-structure analysis, simulation of annealing processes, transient dynamic problems, surface-based fluid cavities.
