Abaqus is one of the powerful engineering software programs which are based on the finite element method. The Abaqus can solve wide range of problems from linear to nonlinear analyses. Abaqus is widely used in many sectors like automotive and mechanical industries for design and development of FEM products. The finite element method is a numerical technique for finding approximate solutions for differential and integral equations [1]. The finite element word was coined by Clough in 1960. In 1960s, engineers used the method for solving the problems in stress analysis, strain analysis, heat and fluid transfer, and other region. Abaqus CAE can provide a simple creating model, submitting the modal, monitoring, and evaluating result and then can also compare with theoretical calculation [2]. In this report all the steps will be explained in different areas such as sketch a modal, assigning material property, applying boundary condition and loads, submit and monitor the job and view the deformed models using the visualisation and create report for results. This report is to demonstrate to create and analyse a structure model in two dimensional with the aim of showing Abaqus software. The methods used to test the modal and analyse on different boundary conditions and also analyse the behaviour of modal with different elements such as truss and beam elements and assume frictionless pin joint in truss and rigid joints welded in beam elements. The results will be compared and explained with theoretical calculated statically determinate truss.
