Abaqus FEA[4][5] (formerly ABAQUS) is a suite of software applications for finite element analysis and computer-aided engineering. The name of this software is derived from the Greek word, “abax” (ἄβαξ), meaning “board covered with sand”.

The Abaqus product suite consists of four core software products:[5]

  1. Abaqus/CAE, a Computer-Aided Engineering software application used for designing, modeling and visualizing machinery
  2. Abaqus/CFD, a Computational Fluid Dynamics software application which is new to Abaqus 6.10[2]
  3. Abaqus/Explicit, a finite element analysis software application that employs explicit integration scheme to solve highly nonlinear transient dynamic and quasi-static analyses
  4. Abaqus/Standard, a general-purpose solver using a traditional implicit integration scheme to solve finite element analyses

The Abaqus products use the open-source scripting language Python for scripting and customization. Abaqus/CAE uses the fox-toolkit for GUI development.

Abaqus is used in the automotive, aerospace, and industrial products industries. The product is popular with academic and research institutions due to the wide material modeling capability, and the program's ability to be customized. Abaqus also provides a good collection of multiphysics capabilities, such as coupled acoustic-structural, piezoelectric, and structural-pore capabilities, making it attractive for production-level simulations where multiple fields need to be coupled.[2]

Abaqus was initially designed to address non-linear physical behavior; as a result, the package has an extensive range of material models such as elastomeric (rubberlike) material capabilities.
