    Export composite layer setup to ABAQUS

    Joao Honorio

      Hello everybody,

       

      Is there a way of seting up a composite simulation study and exporting the composite layer information to ABAQUS?

       

      What we want is to have the parts modeled in SW, setting up the composite layers in SW Simulation but then export this information to run a study in ABAQUS. I haven't been able to find much information about this, so please could you help me?

       

      Thanks in advance

          I have successfully exported an .inp file with material information and elements so I know it can be done.  Just not sure if composite info will translate correctly. 

           

          In Simulation, RMB click on the study name in the tree to the left and select 'Export'.  Then you choose your package you want to export to. 

           

          This is especially nice since it will keep the units unlike exporting the model and meshing in Abaqus (at least in my limited experience.)
