Preparing an Abaqus analysis for co-simulation

Preparing an Abaqus analysis for co-simulation involves the following:

  • identifying an Abaqus analysis step for co-simulation analysis;

  • identifying the co-simulation interface regions in the Abaqus model; and

  • identifying the fields exchanged during the co-simulation.

This section provides an overview of preparing an Abaqus analysis for a co-simulation. The discussion in this section is general and may not apply to every product pairing. Co-simulation between Abaqus solvers provides setup, execution, and limitation details for co-simulation between Abaqus solvers. For co-simulation between Abaqus and third-party analysis programs, consult the appropriate User’s Guide.

The following topics are discussed:
