Balancing Simulation Accuracy vs. Speed

Balancing Simulation Accuracy vs. Speed

In the world of finite element analysis, or FEA, many problems require nonlinear simulations to be accurate. Nonlinear stress analysis in advanced tools like SIMULIA Abaqus can account for extreme deformation and complex contact on large models, but these studies can also take a long time to solve. How can users perform these advanced simulations without sacrificing a huge increase in solve time?
