Dassault Systèmes (Vélizy-Villacoublay, France) has released Abaqus 6.10-EF, under its SIMULIA brand banner, for finite element analysis (FEA) and multiphysics applications. EF indicates extended functionality via new features requested by customers, including improved support for substructure modeling and new contact and mechanics capabilities. The latter improve the efficiency and accuracy of simulating real-world performance of designs, including fluid leakage between 3-D bodies that are in contact with each other. Support for 3-D pressure penetration loading can now be used with any contact formulation, allowing for higher-fidelity simulation results. EF also expands the capabilities of the Extended Finite Element Method (XFEM) in Abaqus, allowing users to predict crack growth due to low-cycle fatigue, such as with thermal analysis of the heating and cooling phase that occurs in an engine exhaust manifold. The software also includes a scalable, parallel-execution capability within the AMS eigensolver, which significantly accelerates the frequency extraction analyses required to study noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) behavior in vehicles. The eigensolver is estimated to be 1.5 times faster than competitive solutions.
