Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit execution

Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit are executed by running the Abaqus execution procedure. Several parameters can be set either on the command line or in the environment file (see Environment File Settings). Alternatively, you can use the convenient Abaqus/CAE user interface to submit an Abaqus analysis from an input file and set the analysis parameters; see Understanding analysis jobs.

Abaqus enforces a character limit on file names. For any command line reference to a file, the total length of the file name, including the path description, cannot exceed 256 characters.
