    Online Webinar Training: Element Selection | 29th October 2021 @ 11:30 - 12:30 CET

    About the Webinar 

    Elements are the basic building blocks in FE modelling of any geometries and structures. It is very important for any FE Analyst to understand the characteristics of these elements, to use them in the proper manner, based on the specific application. It is also necessary to achieve the desired level of accuracy for the simulated problem.

    In Abaqus we have a wide range of elements, more than 500 different types! Some of these elements are unique to Abaqus/Standard and some to Abaqus/Explicit, but there are also elements which are common to both. In this webinar, a brief overview of elements, their characteristics and the challenges encountered in modelling some of these elements are considered. The focus of this webinar is to help FE Analysts to decide when to use specific element types and to counter the challenges that occur while modelling with these elements in Abaqus.
