The Abaqus Student Edition is a personal finite element analysis tool for solving limited size problems (1000 nodes for Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit, and 10,000 nodes for Abaqus/CFD). It is governed by a personal use license, may be installed on your laptop and home computer, and may be used on a perpetual basis.
The Abaqus Student Edition includes the full set of online Abaqus documentation and is supported on Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7. The Abaqus Student Edition is fully compatible with the Abaqus Teaching and Abaqus Research Editions, making this a perfect complement to your Abaqus installations on campus.
The Abaqus Student Edition includes the core Abaqus products; Abaqus/Standard, Abaqus/Explicit, Abaqus/CFD, and Abaqus/CAE.
Model databases are compatible with other academically-licensed versions of Abaqus so that students can perform increasingly sophisticated analyses on models originally created in Abaqus Student Edition. The full HTML documentation set provides a thorough, searchable resource for students to find detailed information.
Designed for personal educational use, the maximum model size for structural analysis and postprocessing is set to 1000 nodes; for fluid analysis, the limit is 10000 nodes. Access to features requiring compilers (user subroutines, Abaqus Make, C ODB API), parallel execution, or add-on products has not been included. Replay and journal files are not available for Abaqus/CAE.
