Quasi-static analysis

A quasi-static stress analysis in Abaqus/Standard:

  • is used to analyze problems with time-dependent material response (creep, swelling, viscoelasticity, and two-layer viscoplasticity);

  • is used when inertia effects can be neglected; and

  • can be linear or nonlinear.

See Mass scaling and Explicit dynamic analysis for information on conducting quasi-static analysis in Abaqus/Explicit. See Implicit dynamic analysis using direct integration for information on conducting quasi-static analysis using a dynamic procedure in Abaqus/Standard.
