In this paper, we will present two methodologies developed to improve the quality and efficiency of dashboards. Both the methodologies have been validated by means of a series of experimental tests and therefore it can be used during the design development process.
In this paper the most advanced features currently available in FE analysis (Abaqus/Explicit) have been used to predict the behaviour of a composite structure under low velocity impact. A low velocity impact event on a flat composite plate has been evaluated. The plate has been modelled using solid elements for each composite layer and a user defined material model with a modified Puck failure criterion was implemented.
The paper mainly focuses on the chances and frontiers our research group encountered dealing with high preformance large deformations simulations in geomechanics under highly complex conditions.
This study presents a mesh objective crack band model is implemented in the generalized method of cells (GMC) micromechanics model to predict failure of a composite repeating unit cell (RUC). The micromechanics calculations are achieved using the MAC/GMC core engine within the ImMAC suite of micromechanics codes, developed at the NASA Glenn Research Center.
These gates are designed to withstand the hydrostatic and
transient pressure loads. A phenomenon that is, however, usually overlooked in the design is the hydrodynamic pressure that is built up in the system during an earthquake.
The study was performed using scaled Tabas earthquake acceleration as the input seismic motion. The results of the simulations are presented in form of a parametric study on the effect of culvert tunnel length, venting geometry, dimension and topology of the vents,
existence of notch at the vent opening, and also the cavitation effect.
The methodology is applied to the analysis of dams, lock gates, and large storage tanks, incorporating in some cases a comparison with the results produced by means of simplified analytical procedures.

In this paper, finite element (FE) models are developed for
some of the ballasted track components including wood and concrete crossties, ballast and subgrade. A user material subroutine is employed to predict the failure of wood ties based on an
orthotropic stress criterion.
The mechanical manipulation of the equipment, however, can induce significant sudden movement of the completion tubing string near the tool’s locking mechanism. The rapid movement of the tubing string causes large relative motion and “piston effect” forces between tool components and fluid present in the wellbore.
This presentation will demonstrate how Abaqus can be used to drive design decisions at an early stage in the engine development process.
In this study, the program BSAP was developed to carry out the stiffness analysis by designer easily and quickly. BSAP has three templates; CATIA template, AFC template, and Report template.

This study is focused on analysis of post-repair behavior of composite structures. The objectives are to a) develop efficient computational approach for repaired areas, capturing processes of both damage initiation and growth; and b) demonstrate it in Abaqus on representative examples of composite repair designs.
In this paper, preliminary results from a numerical study undertaken to study abrasive wear of tillage tools by soil particles are presented. The wear process is modeled as a single sand particle scratching at a prescribed speed on the surface of a tillage tool.
The study presented that simulations agree favorably with the test results and produce higher fidelity solutions than traditional analytical or empirical blast models. The work is shown that Abaqus/Explicit can be used to accurately predict the response of a structure subjected to a near-field blast event with specific application to underbelly blast events on vehicles.
