Abacus models

These ready-to-use Abaqus/CAE models are for your reference. For step-by-step instructions on how to construct them, and for a discussion on the background for each, see the series Getting Started with Abaqus – available on the Kindle.

Not all the models are relevant to the Workbooks that have been released so far: some relate to subsequent Workbooks, which should be out soon. To receive a notification of new releases (or of new editions), either check Amazon or contact us and we’ll email you.
