ABAQUS Inc. (Pawtucket, R.I., U.S.A.) has announced that a new version of ABAQUS nonlinear finite element analysis simulation technology is now available as an integrated element of Dassault Systemes' CATIA V5, v. 1.1. The new software integrates simulation with product design, adding to CATIA the structural and thermal analysis "workbenches" that provide the tools necessary to enable engineers to perform nonlinear simulation from within the CATIA environment. This minimizes time-consuming model-redefinition when switching between environments.
