The team at Hawk Ridge is here to help you succeed. Our experienced simulation team has helped many companies like yours create better performing products using advanced simulation tools like Abaqus.

  • We helped our customer integrate realistic biomedical simulation with 3D scanning and 3D printing to enable the creation of medical treatment devices individually customized for each patient.
  • We worked with an aerospace company to optimize a metal forming process. Advanced FEA was needed to simulate extreme deformation and obtain realistic reaction forces.
  • An engineering consulting firm needed a way to simulate sloshing fluid in oscillating structures. They reached out to us for help with solving this fluid-structure interaction problem using the multiphysics capabilities of Abaqus.

Can SIMULIA Abaqus perform multiphysics simulations?
Yes. Abaqus provides robust multiphysics capabilities, including thermal-stress, thermal-electrical, low-frequency electromagnetics, structural-acoustics, and more.
What is the difference between implicit and explicit solving?
These are two different methods for solving FEA problems. The implicit solution technology in Abaqus/Standard is ideal for solving static and low-speed dynamic events, such as sealing pressure in a gasket joint or crack propagation in a composite airplane fuselage. The explicit solution technology employed by Abaqus/Explicit is well-suited for high-speed dynamic events, such as consumer electronics drop testing, automotive crashes, and ballistic impact.
What is “general contact”?
It can be challenging and tedious to predict and define all the possible contacting surfaces in a simulation. Abaqus uses “general contact” to automatically detect contact between different bodies, dramatically reducing missed contact definitions and time required to define contact in complex assemblies.
Does SIMULIA Abaqus integrate with SOLIDWORKS?
Yes. Abaqus provides an associative interface for importing SOLIDWORKS models. You can easily update your simulation with any changes to your SOLIDWORKS model, enabling rapid iteration.
How is SIMULIA Abaqus licensed?
Both perpetual licensing (with subscription) and term licensing are available. The main licensing variable is the quantity of tokens you require (see next question).
What are tokens? How many tokens do I need?
Abaqus uses token-based licensing for running simulations. The quantity of tokens required depends on the number of CPU cores used. Running jobs on multiple CPUs can significantly reduce the computation time. Therefore, the number of tokens you need depends on the computer hardware you have, the size and complexity of your simulation, and how quickly you need results.
What are fe-safe, Isight, and Tosca?
Abaqus extended licensing can also provide access to additional capabilities – fe-safe for fatigue analysis, Isight for parametric optimization, and Tosca for topology and shape optimization.
