So I am trying to have a "wire" cut the piece of metal. I dont know the thermal properties of the wire. (wire EDM) I know electricity is conducted throught the wire but I dont know how to show that in Abaqus. I've created the parts and I dont know how to make them interact. I want to give the wire a velocity and have it go in the direction of the work piece. I want it to cut out a small rectamgular piece. In the end I just want to see how the region that is cut is affected by heat and other stresses. (deflection and deformation). The pictures are an idea of what I'm trying to say... Hope you can help. I am new to abaqus. Even a tutorial on cutting will help greatly. I want to know how to simulate cutting using WEDM. Please help me if you knnow how. Thank you.
I am looking for any literature on the solution the analysis of composite plates with multiple holes in them. I have been able to find plenty of information about single holes in composite plates but none on multiple hole interaction, hence this call for help.
Thank you in advance,

I just wanted to let everyone know about the upcoming NAFEMS North American 2008 Regional Summit: NAFEMS 2020 Vision of Engineering Analysis and Simulation. This is an excellent opportunity for academic researchers, industrial practitioners and software developers to meet for mutual benefit.
For those of who you not familiar with NAFEMS, it is a non-profit, vendor neutral, engineering analyis community.
At this moment, we have an excellent keynote line-up, including the following individuals: Prof. Ahmed Noor (Old Dominion University), Dr. Takeshi Abe (Ford Motor Company), Prof. Tom Hughes (Univ. of Texas-Austin), Prof. Mary Boyce (M.I.T.), and Dr. Joel Orr (Cyon Research).
