Demonstration Videos (a.k.a. Abaqus tutorials)

For each scripting example, the book first describes how to set up the model in the GUI (Abaqus/CAE). This is because the analyst needs to know how to perform the simulation in Abaqus/CAE in the first place, before attempting to script and enhance it. All the steps are spelled out in the book. These videos were created for those of you who prefer to watch rather than read. Use the navigation menu on the left to view each video.

If you are new to Abaqus, you can learn how to use the software by watching these videos, but you will benefit more from watching the enhanced versions with audio narration. They can be found at the following locations:

I am generally unable to respond to emails asking for help with simulations. You could try posting it as a comment on the Abaqus FEA Tutorial Series page and either I or someone else might be able to respond.
