The latest releases of Abaqus, Tosca & fe-safe are now available. Watch this video to learn about the key new features that will be available in Abaqus, Tosca and fe-safe R2020x.


The Abaqus Unified FEA product suite offers powerful and complete solutions for both routine and sophisticated engineering problems covering a vast spectrum of industrial applications

Product Highlights:

  • Linear and nonlinear analysis including geometric, material, and contact nonlinearities.
  • Material models for metals, composites, human tissue, rubber, thermoplastics, and more.
  • Material fracture and failure
  • Robust contact capabilities
  • High-performance computing


The Tosca optimization suite provides fast and powerful structural and flow optimization solutions based on FEA and CFD simulations. Tosca optimization suite consists of two products: Tosca Structure is for optimized structural designs, and Tosca Fluid provides optimized fluid flow design concepts.

Product Highlights Tosca Structure:

  • Helps to find the design e.g. with maximum stiffness or minimum weight under functional specifications
  • Helps to reduce mass through optimized sheet thickness

Product Highlight Tosca Fluid:

  • Provides topology optimization of channel flow to reduce pressure drop


fe-safe is a powerful, comprehensive and easy-to-use suite of software for fatigue analysis from finite element models. It is used with commercial structural analysis (FEA) software, to calculate:

  • Where fatigue cracks will occur;
  • hen fatigue cracks will initiate;
  • The factors of safety on working stresses;

Product Highlights:

  • Fatigue of welded joints
  • Vibration fatigue
  • Test program validation
  • Critical distance methods for crack growth prediction
  • Property mapping for casting or forging simulations

What’s new:

  • Material and element enhancements
  • Contact enhancements
  • Modeling and visualization enhancements
