Transient analyses using Abaqus/Explicit – High-performance solver for high-speed dynamics and transient events

The Abaqus/Explicit solver is ideally suited for the analysis of highly nonlinear, short, transient dynamic events – for example for the simulation of drop tests, crashes, ballistic impact or forming processes.

Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit - Compatibility

The results at any point within an Abaqus/Standard-analysis run can be used to define the starting conditions for an analysis in Abaqus/Explicit. Similarly, an analysis started in Abaqus/Explicit can be continued in Abaqus/Standard.
