"ABAQUS Student Edition is affordable, easily deployable, and scalable simulation software that educators can rely on to enrich their coursework in the theory and real-world application of FEA," says Dr. Abdel-salam Niazy, P.E., who uses ABAQUS Student Edition software as part of his curriculum at the University of Southern California. "Feedback from my students about the software has been very positive."
ABAQUS Student Edition Version 6.6 complements ABAQUS Research Edition and ABAQUS Teaching Edition, which are used extensively in academic institutions worldwide to train engineers in the use of finite element analysis to solve real-world engineering problems.
"The open and scalable ABAQUS environment presents an alternative to fragmented, multivendor approaches to simulation by offering a more unified FEA methodology," says Ken Short, vice president of marketing at ABAQUS, Inc. "ABAQUS Student Edition Version 6.6 allows students to prepare themselves for this innovative approach, which involves the use of a single model to solve multiple performance attributes such as nonlinear dynamics, vibration, acoustics, durability, and fluid-structure interaction."
ABAQUS software is well established at the university undergraduate, graduate, and research level at more than 1,000 sites worldwide. ABAQUS Student Edition is an ideal educational companion tool for universities using ABAQUS Research or Teaching licenses. It is also a valuable educational tool for industry professionals. The software leverages the capabilities of ABAQUS/CAE, ABAQUS/Standard, and ABAQUS/Explicit to solve FEA problems of limited size (1,000 nodes) and is available for both the Windows XP and Windows 2000 Platforms. The software can be purchased online at www.abaqus.com/student.
