The Abaqus Unified FEA product suite offers powerful and complete solutions for both routine and sophisticated engineering problems covering a vast spectrum of industrial applications.

Main Features

FEA and Multiphysics

Linear and non-linear, Coupled physics (structural acoustics, thermal-electrical, and more), electromagnetics and smoothed particle hydrodynamics.

Complex Materials

Rubbers, thermo-plastics, powder metals, human tissue, soil, composites, and more.

Complex Assemblies

Ability to model interactions between deformable bodies, rigid bodies, and self-contact.

Contact, Fracture & Failure

Well-suited for high-speed dynamic events, such as consumer electronics drop testing, automotive crashworthiness, and ballistic impact.

High-Performance Computing

Reducing analysis turnaround time enables the examination of multiple and more detailed design scenarios.

Model Preparation and Results Interpretation

The comprehensive set of best-in-class visualization capabilities in Abaqus helps users interpret and communicate model data and analysis results.


Abaqus/Standard is ideal for static and low-speed dynamic events where highly accurate stress solutions are important.  Within a single simulation, it is possible to analyse a model both in the time and frequency domain. Abaqus/Standard is supported within the Abaqus/CAE modelling environment for all common pre and post processing needs.

The results at any point within an Abaqus/Standard run can be used as the starting conditions for continuation in Abaqus/Explicit.  Similarly, an analysis that starts in Abaqus/Explicit can be continued in Abaqus/Standard.


Abaqus/Explicit is ideal for analyses where high-speed, non-linear, transient response dominates the solution. The ability of Abaqus/Explicit to effectively handle severely non-linear behaviour such as contact, makes it very attractive for the simulation of many quasi-static events, such as rolling of hot metal and slow crushing of energy absorbing devices.

The results at any point within an Abaqus/Explicit run can be used as the starting conditions for continuation in Abaqus/Standard. Similarly, an analysis that starts in Abaqus/Standard can be continued in Abaqus/Explicit.
