Introduction to Abaqus / CAE

Abaqus/CAE provides a complete interactive environment for creating Abaqus models, submitting and monitoring analysis jobs and viewing and manipulating simulation results. This course is intended to complement the Introduction to Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit course, which describes how to perform linear and nonlinear analyses with Abaqus.

$1,160 / Student
2 Days
Intended for new Abaqus/CAE users. Some familiarity with interactive preprocessors is helpful but not required.
