    ABAQUS software is a general-purpose finite element simulation package mainly used for numerically solving a wide variety of design engineering problems; however, its application to simulate the dynamic structures within the civil engineering domain is highly complicated. Therefore, this book aims to present specific complicated and puzzling challenges encountered in the application of Finite Element Method (FEM) for solving the problems related to Structural Dynamics using ABAQUS software that can fully utilize this method in complex simulation and analysis. Various chapters of this book demonstrate the process for the modeling and analysis of impenetrable problems through simplified step-by-step illustration by presenting screenshots from ABAQUS software in each part/step and showing various graphs.


    • Focuses on solving problems related to Structural Dynamics using ABAQUS software
    • Helps to model and analyze the different types of structures under various dynamic and cyclic loads
    • Discusses the simulation of irregularly-shaped objects comprising several different materials with multipart boundary conditions
    • Includes the application of various load effects to develop structural models using ABAQUS software
    • Covers a broad array of applications such as bridges, offshores, dams, and seismic resistant systems

    Overall, this book is aimed at graduate students, researchers, and professionals in structural engineering, solid mechanics, and civil engineering.
