Simpleware Case Study: Fuel Cell Microstructure from FIB Data

In this case study, based on work carried out at Imperial College and University College London, research was carried out into the performance of solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs). The microstructure of an SOFC electrode was obtained using FIB tomography, and a volume mesh generated in Simpleware software, with the model then exported to Abaqus CAE. Boundary conditions were set in the solver and stress analysis conducted, which were able to approxiamte peak maximum principal stresses in response to thermal expansion.

regarding composite modeling under impact


i make a model of 3d composite plate with analytical rigid impactor . i used continuum shell element (sc8r element).

my model is not failed even at high velocities. i am not understand why,,,

any one help me..

Abaqus dynamic explicit

Hi all,


Would you please let me know if it's possible, how to identify the length of mesh, time period of step, factor scaling, ... of an Abaqus dynamic explicit problem.

Thanks in advance,
