Dassault Systèmes announced new nonlinear structural optimization, coupled multiphysics, and high-performance computing technology available in Abaqus 6.11.
The software marks the first release of the Abaqus Topology Optimization Module (ATOM). This add-on product enables users to perform topology and shape optimization for single parts and assemblies, while taking into account large deformation, material nonlinearity and contact.
The product also introduces a new electromagnetics solution technology to solve problems requiring time-harmonic eddy current analysis, such as the hardening of a bearing surface due to induction. In addition, this release provides a new smoothed particle hydrodynamics capability for modeling violent free-surface flows, such as fluid sloshing. Additionally, customers will benefit from support for graphics processing units (GPU).
