Abaqus

ABAQUS is a general-purpose finite element analysis program for use in the numerical modeling of structural response. Stress problems can be divided into two types, static and dynamic response, depending upon whether inertial effects are significant. ABAQUS permits the same analysis to be used for both the static and dynamic phases. The program is designed for ease of use on complex problems, and has a simple input language, with comprehensive data checking, as well as a wide range of preprocessing and postprocessing output display options. Modules available include standard, explicit, USA, AQUA, and post.

The current version can be evoked by loading the abaqus module ("module load abaqus") and typing "abaqus" on the command line.

For more information, see www.simulia.com or type "abaqus help" on the installed system's command line.
