ABAQUS Explicit with Membrane Elements – Santa’s Sack Chimney Drop – Fidelis Fun Features


It’s almost Christmas!!! And we’ve always wondered how those gifts stay in one piece after their fall down the chimney!?

The Fidelis Fun Features series is aimed at taking a lighthearted approach to learning some of the more advanced features of ABAQUS in a fun and efficient way. In this video, we take you through the steps required to build geometry, define materials and define appropriate interactions and loading to simulate the most famous sack drop in the world. The video runs around 18 minutes and includes the entire model building process from scratch in Abaqus CAE.

So sit back, relax, throw a Christmas movie on in the background, and enjoy! And don’t forget to LIKE and SUBSCRIBE if you’d like to see more simulation related content!
