I would like to have your suggestion regarding the following problem:

two blocks in contact (the small one on top of the bigger one) and an horizontal load application.

Static simulation in Abaqus cannot be done (boundary conditions used in order to make the system isostatic are non compatible with an horizontal load application). A dynamic analysis have to be done but ABAQUS CAE cannot be used and I don t know well if ABAQUS STANDARD can be used because in literature abaqus explicit seems to be more commonly used.

You should be able to perform the analysis using either Standard or Explicit. You may find that it is easier to make the simulation converge in Explicit.

Abaqus/CAE should have no problem setting up the problem. Read the manual for the details.
