Parametric Modeling

The parametric input capability allows you to create an Abaqus input file in which:

  • Any number of input parameters is defined by assigning a value to each one of them.

  • The parameters defined in the input file are used in place of input quantities.

  • The parameters are evaluated according to their definition and are substituted for the parametrized input quantities before an analysis is run.

Parametric input allows greater flexibility in building and manipulating models. The different kinds of parameters and the different ways of parametrizing the Abaqus input quantities are discussed in this section.
