Abaqus Structural Analysis Essentials

Top employers in the industry are looking for skilled students & individuals certified on 3DS solutions to unleash the power of 3DS tools. Abaqus Certification validates that you have the skills and knowledge needed to unleash the power of Abaqus tools. 

The Abaqus Certification exam tests knowledge of the solutions as well as hands-on experience with live access exams where you solve real life simulation challenges with Abaqus solutions. As a Certified Abaqus Associate, you demonstrate your proficiency using Abaqus/CAE and Abaqus/Standard for structural analysis including - but not limited to - element definition, loading and boundary conditions description, constraints, geometric nonlinearities, metal plasticity, and contact. An initial training of three to six months is highly recommended.

This exam is a foundational skills test for modeling and post-processing of basic to intermediate structures.

Recommended Training Courses: 
Introduction to Abaqus

Exam Length: 3.0 hours

Minimum Passing points: 320

Re-test Policy:  There is a minimum 14 day waiting period between every attempt of the exam.  Also, a separate exam credit must be purchased for each exam attempt.

Exam features several problem sets and contains multiple-choice questions on Abaqus knowledge. 

  • Topics covered: 
    • Working with beam, shell and solid continuum elements
    • Defining static linear and nonlinear analysis study
    • Applying loads and boundary conditions
    • Understanding results
    • Knowledge of element library, contact interaction algorithms, metal plasticity, multistep
  • Problem set 1: Build a FE model of a straight beam for which no geometry and mesh are provided.
  • Problem set 2: Run a Python script to generate a crane model consisting of beam elements.
  • Problem set 3: build a FE model of a shell structure for which no geometry and mesh are provided.
  • Problem set 4: Run a nonlinear multi-step analysis of a 3D model of a 3 point bend test of a plate and beam in contact. The geometry and a coarse mesh will be provided in a Python script.
  • Problem set 5: Run a Python script to generate an axisymmetric model of a cap-vessel assembly
  • Problem set 6: Small model provided in a python script to evaluate non-convergence. There are a total of 4 small models (family). Each one is aimed to evaluate either geometric, plasticity or contact nonlinearities.
