1. Software Seminars

The Congress on Numerical Methods in Engineering (CMN 2019) brings you software seminars to get you introduced to some of the most advanced software available and the latest developments. Three different software seminars will be held at the end of the Congress regular program, on July 4, 2019, namely:

• OpenFOAM
• DIANA
• ABAQUS

These seminars are designed for students, practicing engineers and researchers interested in advanced methods and high-performance analysis. Engineers already using any of the softwares or interested to get acquainted with the software and the latest developments are welcome.

Additional details will be provided soon.

 

Additional information:

• Registration fee is 100€/seminar to be paid with the registration fee of the congress.
• Registration fee include seminar documentation, coffee breaks and lunch.
• Final acceptance is contingent upon number of registered participants: minimum of 10 participants and maximum of 20 participants per seminar.

 

1.1. OpenFOAM

Introduction to OpenFOAM®
OpenFOAM® (Open source Field Operation And Manipulation) is a free, open source computational toolbox that has a large user base across most areas of engineering and science, from both commercial and academic organizations. As a technology, OpenFOAM provides an extensive range of features to solve anything from complex fluid flows involving chemical reactions, turbulence and heat transfer, to solid dynamics and electromagnetics, among several others.
The course provides a general overview of the structure and usability of OpenFOAM®, covering all the major phases of a numerical case study. It is a hands on-course, thus the participants should bring their own laptop, to perform the proposed assignments.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Additional details will be provided soon.

 

 

1.2. DIANA

Nonlinear structural analysis with DIANA
DIANA provides finite elements for structural and geotechnical models, along with a wide range of materials, algorithms and solution methods. The participants will explore capabilities and latest features of DIANA through worked-out examples and real-world applications. The course focuses on the application of the finite element method in the structural analysis of concrete and steel structures. During the course, particular attention will be given to the nonlinear analysis of (reinforced and fiber reinforced) concrete structures with special emphasis on crack modelling. Delegates will learn good-practice in nonlinear finite element analysis. Consideration will also be given to the criteria needed in choosing from the different crack models that are available, convergence criteria, and specification of the relevant corresponding parameters.
The course is designed for students, practicing engineers and researchers interested in finite element methods and high performance nonlinear structural analysis. Engineers using already DIANA or interested to get acquainted with the software and its latest developments are welcome.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptop.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Additional details will be provided soon.

 

 

1.3. ABAQUS

Writing User Subroutines with Abaqus
The user subroutines in Abaqus allow the program to be customized for particular applications. Among subroutines available user subroutine UMAT in Abaqus/Standard and user subroutine VUMAT in Abaqus/Explicit allow constitutive models to be added to the program, while user subroutine DLOAD allows specifying user-defined loading. USDFLD in Abaqus/Standard and VUSDFLD in Abaqus/Explicit can be used for defining field variable dependence.

The seminar will explain when to consider the use of user subroutines and how to approach their development. Detailed descriptions will be given of the data required for each of the subroutines mentioned above, the additional statements to be included and the variables that are available within the routine. Particular attention will be paid to highlighting good practice in user subroutine development.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Additional details will be provided soon.
