Dynamic impact of a scooter with a bump

This example demonstrates the combined use of Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit to provide a more cost effective solution than by using either Abaqus/Standard or Abaqus/Explicit alone.

The following Abaqus features are demonstrated:

  • Abaqus/Standard to Abaqus/Explicit co-simulation, where

  • Abaqus/Standard employs substructuring, a feature not available in Abaqus/Explicit, to efficiently handle modeling of a component subjected to small strains, and

  • Abaqus/Explicit is used to efficiently simulate high-speed contact interactions.
