ABAQUS for CATIA (AFC), the software tool, uses the powerful pre- and post-processing capability of CATIA V5 to set up problems for solution using the versatile FEA solver, ABAQUS.  Currently, AFC is capable of solving problems involving linear and non-linear static as well as thermal analyses.[ABAQUS for CATIA V5  Tutorials AFC V2.5,Nader G. Zamani University of Windsor &  Shuvra Das University of Detroit Mercy]

Abaqus for CATIA takes the existing functionality of Abaqus Standard and integrates this within the CATIA environment. The result is advanced functionality that extends beyond the CATIA analysis tools, working on native CATIA data within the standard CATIA interface. Abaqus for CATIA offers thermal and basic non-linear structural analysis capabilities within the CATIA Environment.

Key Features:

  • Assembly of analysis documents
  • Sub-modelling available for static and dynamic analysis
  • Cyclic symmetry allows modelling of an entire 360⁰ structure
  • Define composite layup and import composite properties
  • Utilise CATIA Design Tables to define component tables
  • High-fidelity contact


  • Integrated into CATIA
  • Realistic and robust modelling
  • Easily compare design alternatives using parameters and design tables
  • Optimise structures to meet targets
  • Deploy proven workflows to designers
  • Have confidence in results
