Abaqus Interface

GiD-Abaqus Interface allows the user to pre and postprocess Abaqus problems in a single and completely graphical environment, thanks to the powerful tools of GiD. Geometry can be directly created with the GiD CAD tools or imported and repaired thanks to a standard format (please refer to the GiD manual in order to get more information). Before or after meshing, the user can apply several conditions to the model:

  • Define sets of nodes
  • Define sets of elements
  • Define sets of surfaces (by nodes or face elements)
  • Specify the formulation of every element
  • Create and apply some elastic materials
  • Define local coordinate systems

After running the simulation, all the Abaqus results can be postprocessed in GiD by reading the resulting Abaqus Database (ODB)
