HyperWorks for ABAQUS

ABAQUS Interfacing

This course helps students learn how to use HyperMesh to create and interface with ABAQUS formatted models and to use HyperView to post-process ABAQUS results.

Class Format
  • 1 day
  • Instructor led
  • Presentation and hands-on exercises, one student to a computer
  • A basic knowledge of ABAQUS
  • A basic knowledge of HyperMesh and HyperView. It is recommended students complete the course Altair HyperMesh and HyperView, Modeling and Results Visualization Introduction.
  • If you are already familiar with HyperMesh, but not with HyperView, it is recommended you attend the course Altair HyperView, Results Visualization and Data Analysis Introduction.
Topics - HyperMesh
  • Basic interfacing with HyperMesh
    • Using the ABAQUS FE input translator and output templates
    • Accessing ABAQUS interface tools from the Macro Menu
