use ABAQUS/CAE in Laser Forming


 I am a new user here, and I have two problems to use ABAQUS/CAE,

the first problem, I need some tutorials or helps to simulate a coupled temperature-displacement in ABAQUS/CAE !!

 the second is the major problem, my project is in Laser Forming and I want use ABAQUS/CAE in this domain?

thank you in advance for your assistance

Search “ABAQUS Document”in google you will find some tutorials on abaqus.

What type of structure and materials are you considered? Should the phase transition of the materials be taken into account?


for example I use the mild steel material, the phase transition is not be taken into account !!, the melting temprature must be not reached..

i explain my problem with taking an example,

I have a plate with 80x40x2mm in dimension, I want to apply a circular thermal source's (considered as a laser) at one of the surface of the plateand his displacement, how can I simulate thies source's? I know that the Dflux user subroutine is used to define nonuniform distributed flux in heat transfer and mass diffusion analyses. (see images)

how i can simulate the thermal source's and its displacment???

thank you for your assistance


Hi there,


Would you please send me your file that you could move the heat source?

I do not have any idea about that.

You can e-mail me on:
