Dassault Systemes is to acquire US software maker Abaqus for $413m (£223m) to boost its simulation technology offering.

Abaqus has simulation software sales of $100m a year and operating margins of around 25%. 

Dassault has also announced the release of Simulia, an open platform designed to support simulation applications.
