CZone for Abaqus (CZA) is an add-on capability to Abaqus/Explicit that provides access to a state-of-the-art methodology for crush simulation. Based on CZone technology from Engenuity Ltd., CZone for Abaqus provides for the inclusion of material crush behavior in Abaqus/Explicit simulations of composite structures subjected to impact.
By attending this half-day class you will learn how to include crushable composite structures in your impact simulations. Guidelines for defining crushable composite materials based on a composite coupon and component testing will be provided, along with an introduction to the Abaqus/CAE composite layup functionality. You will learn how to incorporate crushable composite structures into your models and how to post-process CZA analysis results.
Who Should Attend
This seminar is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus/Explicit. The Abaqus/Explicit: Advanced Topics and Analysis of Composite Materials with Abaqus seminars are recommended as prerequisites
