My name is Miguel Herraez and I want to transform the finite element simulation field by using Abaqus Scripting
Are you stuck professionally and need an impulse in your skills to have access to new opportunities?
Do you think programming and making simulations is limited to just a few “experts”? Do you think simulation softwares are complicated or hard to understand?
Do you think that you are not good enough in your work and you are afraid of not fulfilling the expectations? Does solving a problem take too many hours of your time?
Are you fed up of wasting time by looking for answers in forums, blogs, videotutorials to learn Abaqus, but you never get to the point?
Do you feel alone when trying to solve your problems because you don’t count on someone who can guide you at critical stages?
I have also gone through these situations and I would like to share with you my knowledge and experience so that you can break through those obstacles really fast.
In 2013, I started a Phd on Materials Science and it was then when Abaqus crossed my path. As I had been told, Abaqus is an incredibly powerful tool, countless possibilities, but mastering it was not an easy task.
Although it was quite difficult at the beginning, ever since I have worked with Abaqus daily and I have developed an exclusive method to help you learning how to use it.
My name is Miguel Herráez, I am an industrial engineer and Phd in materials science.
In 2013, I started a Phd and I felt overwhelmed when I realized how many new things I had to master in such a short period of time. I needed to use Abaqus from the very first day, but I did not know anything about it.
I needed to learn quickly, I didn’t know where to get started and I was running out of time. I spent many days and nights reading, filtering and collecting information to get up to date.
Since that time, I have been working with Abaqus daily, for scientific purposes as well as for indutrial projects. This allowed me to develop a unique method to learn how to use Abaqus in an easy and fast way.
Thanks to this methodology, I have achieved further goals than I would have ever expected, and what is more important, I have helped other people to make it real too.
Learning Abaqus is easy, if you know the right path
Whether you are giving your first steps in Abaqus or you are already an advanced Abaqus user, in this site you will find the resources to reach and go beyond your goals
You can learn through my blog, where you will find updated information that you can apply and put into practice
If you don’t have the time and you need results quickly and efficiently, I recommend you to take a look at the consultancy tab
If you have any question or you are just wondering what kind of learning path suits best your needs, please fill up the contact form and we will contact you as soon as possible

Who is Miguel Herraéz?
My story of dedication and passion for my profession
Time is our most valuable resource, I wonder why we underestimate it so often
With the method that I have designed you, you will not only save a lot of time during the learning stage, but you will save much more time in the development of all your models. I must admit that since I found out how to automate operations combining Abaqus and Python, I have saved thousands of hours, what not only involves the development of much more complex and sophisticated models, but above all, I have had more time to enjoy with my family, my hobbies and to build this project
How far do you want to go?
These skills opened unimaginable possibilities to me. The most astounding was to become visitting researcher at NASA Langley Research Center (Hampton, Virginia) to collaborate on a research project developing micromechanical models
Later on, upon completing my Phd I got a post-doctoral position at the Laboratory of Mechanics and Reliability Analysis (LMAF) in the Polytechnic Federal School of Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland), where my research focused on complex failure mechanisms of carbon fiber reinforced laminates
Finally, after all these experiences I made the decision to promote learning of these techniques and tools to everyone who may be interested: from pregrad students, up to experienced professionals looking for complementary skills. This is how this project was born with which I expect I can help all the people who need it
