Brand information


Being a legal entity Dassault Systèmes Simulia Corp. is engaged in selling computer-aided engineering software. Today it works in the market with its SIMULIA brand representing all DS simulation products including Abaqus and CATIA Analysis applications. SIMULIA makes simulation testing of reality an integral part of business practice thus increasing product efficiency and reducing quantity of physical prototypes. The brand history started in 1978 when Dr. David Hibbitt, Dr. Bengt Karlsson and Dr. Paul Sorensen established the company Hibbitt, Karlsson & Sorensen, Inc., (HKS), headquartered in Providence, Rhode Island, United States. Later it was known as ABAQUS Inc. as in October 2005 Dassault Systèmes purchased ABAQUS, Inc.

The Abaqus series offers three core software products: Abaqus/Standard, Abaqus/Explicit and Abaqus/CAE or Complete Abaqus Environment. Besides recently Abaqus /CFD appeared as a new Abaqus version offering computational fluid dynamics simulation. Each program package with add-in modules meets specialized requirements of the clients.

Abaqus/Standard is a multipurpose traditional finite-element analyzer implying an ideal solution for static, dynamic and thermal model, analyzing both in the time and frequency domain, with a broad range of contact and nonlinear material options. Additional Abaqus/Standard capabilities are associated with design sensitivity analysis, offshore technologies as well as integration with software of other parties.

Abaqus/Explicit offers specialized finite-element analysis with using explicit integration solutions for analyses of multiple manufacturing operations under transient loads.

Abaqus/CAE is the most preferred modeling solution among multiple Abacus consumers for being a complete solution for Abaqus finite element modeling, visualization and process automation.

With increased support for pre-and post-processing provided in Abaqus / CAE , Abaqus/CFD possesses advanced capabilities for parallel simulation gas and hydro-dynamics. This allows to solve a broad range of nonlinear gas hydro-thermal and gas hydro-structural problems.
