EasyPBC Periodic Homogenisation Tool
EasyPBC is an ABAQUS CAE plugin developed to estimate the homogenised effective elastic properties of user created periodic Representative Volume Element (RVE), all within ABAQUS without the need to use third-party software. The plugin automatically applies the concepts of the periodic RVE homogenisation method in the software’s user interface by categorising, creating, and linking sets necessary for achieving deformable periodic boundary surfaces, which can distort and no longer remain plane. Additionally, it allows the user to benefit from finite element analysis data within ABAQUS CAE interface after calculating homogenised properties.
