ABAQUS CAE Procedures
A complete Abaqus analysis (also any FEM analysis) usually consists of three distinctstages:preprocessing,simulation, andpostprocessing. These three stages are linked together by files as shown below:
 In this stage you must define the model of the physical problem and create anAbaqusinput file. The model is usually created graphically using Abaqus/CAE or anotherpreprocessor, although the Abaqus input file for a simple analysis can be created directlyusing a text editor.The preprocessing step is usually time consuming!!!!
Simulation(Abaqus/Standard or Abaqus/Explicit)
 The simulation, which normally is run as a background process, is the stage in whichAbaqus/Standard or Abaqus/Explicit (the Solvers) solves the numerical problem defined inthe model.Examples of output from a stress analysis include displacements and stresses that are stored in binary files ready forpostprocessing. Depending on the complexity of theproblem being analyzed and the power of the computer being used, it may take anywherefrom seconds to days to complete an analysis run.
 You can evaluate the results once the simulation has been completed and thedisplacements, stresses, or other fundamental variables have been calculated. Theevaluation is generally done interactively using the Visualization module of Abaqus/CAE oranother postprocessor. The Visualization module, which reads the neutral binary outputdatabase file, has a variety of options for displaying the results, includingcolor contourplots, animations, deformed shape plots, and
plots.An Abaqus model (a FEM model) is composed of several different components thattogether describe the physical problem to be analyzed and the results to be obtained.
At a minimum the analysis model consists of the following information:

discretized geometry,
element section properties,
material data,
loads and boundary conditions,
analysis type,
output requests
To start Abaqus/CAE, you enter the command
abaqus cae 
at your operating system prompt, where
is the command used to run Abaqus. Thiscommand may be different on your system. For Windows O.S. you can press the shortcuticonWhen Abaqus/CAE begins, the
Start Session
dialog box appears as shown inFigure 2–1.The following session startup options are available:
Create Model Database
allows you to begin a new analysis.
Open Database
allows you to open a previously saved model or output databasefile.
Run Script
allows you to run a file containing Abaqus/CAE commands.
Start Tutorial
allows you to begin an introductory tutorial from the onlinedocumentation.
