Ductile Damage Simulation in ABAQUS CAE – Through Explicit and Standard

In this blog I take you through ductile damage modelling in ABAQUS CAE using both explicit and standard analysis steps. After going through this video you will be able to answer and perform the following with full confidence.

  • How to simulate ductile failure of a metal in ABAQUS?
  • Tips on improving convergence in simulating ductile damage.
  • How to model ductile damage in ABAQUS Explicit?
  • Standard or Explicit for ductile damage? Which is better?

You will also learn about modelling damage or fracture using element deletion in ABAQUS.
