Introduction to Abaqus

This course is a comprehensive and unified introduction to the modeling and analysis capabilities of Abaqus. It teaches you how to solve linear and nonlinear problems, submit and monitor analysis jobs and view simulation results using the interactive interface of Abaqus. The following products will be covered: Abaqus/CAE, Abaqus Standard and Abaqus Explicit.
