The Analytical Field toolset

Abaqus/CAE provides two types of analytical fields: expression fields and mapped fields. You can use analytical fields to define spatially varying values for selected properties, loads, interactions, and predefined fields, such as the variation of a pressure over a region in a pressure load. The Analytical Field toolset allows you to create and manage analytical fields in the Property module, Interaction module, or Load module.
