Elasto Plastic model for ballast material

I am new to Abaqus, and moddlling railroad ballast material in abaqus for cyclic loading. Could you please anyone let me know what is best elsto plastic model in Abaqus I can use for the ballast material.

Thank you.

viscoelastic modelling in abaqus


im a new abaqus user and i want to model a viscoelastic material (asphalt) in abaqus . i have uniaxial creep test data for characterize viscoelastic behaviour . my question is how can i enter viscoelastic parameters in abaqus?is there any way to put creep test data directely in abaqus??

in abaqus for modelling viscoelastic material in time domain there are three ways:

1)combined test data

2)shear test data

3)volumetric test data

Measuring Thermal Conductivity of Aerogels with Guarded Hot Plate Method

My question is on what basis do we decide 

1. The dimensions of the sample 
2. The dimensions of the hot and the cold plate 
3. The type of temperature detector sensors used 
4. Heating Source for the hot plate

Postdoctoral Position: Mesoscale Modeling Materials at the University of Connecticut

The Computational Materials & Mechanics Group (CMMG) at the University of Connecticut has an opening for a postdoctoral researcher in the area of modeling of mechanical behavior of materials at the mesoscale. The postdoctoral researcher will work on the development and application of mesoscale models to investigate the dynamic response of metallic materials (high strain rate, shock) and will involve generation of data using atomistic simulations (molecular dynamics) for validation.

Why Abaqus give incorrect result in plane strain plasticity?!!

There is an incorrect result from Abaqus in plane strain plasticity simulation. In this short video, this  result is shown.

It would be pleased if anybody have any idea about why this happen ?!!

Aalto University School of Engineering in Finland has an open position for a doctoral student in the Arctic Marine and Ice Technology research group at the Department of Applied Mechanics. Our research group studies the behavior of ships and structures in ice, ice mechanics and also assesses the impact of sea ice on the safety of maritime transportation. An important part of our research is experimental work. For that we have excellent possibilities as we operate the Aalto Ice Tank, a 40 m × 40 m ice model basin.

Postdoc Position in Computational Modeling of Growth and Remodeling Mechanisms

A postdoctoral fellowship position is available at the laboratory of Rafael Grytz, PhD, at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, for 2 years, starting immediately. The candidate will be instrumental in developing computational methods to quantify and simulate growth and remodeling mechanisms in ocular conditions and diseases.

Call for Abstract : Fifth International Indentation Workshop, Nov.1-5, 2015, Richardson, USA.

Dear Colleagues,

Indentation, in particular, instrumented nanoindentation has become an elegant and effective technique for probing materials behavior at nanoscales and up.

We are now organizing the Fifth International Indentation Workshop (IIW5), which will take place at the University of Texas at Dallas, USA on November 1-5, 2015.

Tensile Strenght vs Tensile Stress (of welded specimen)

Helo everyone,

I did the UTM Tensile testing for my standard specimen and got the stress strain table.

As a result i got the Tensile Strength (in Mpa). 

In abaqus i modeled the standard specimen and created the weld like model.

The plastic material properties (material properties of my Electrode E7018) is given to the weld geometry and

UTM results for the standard specimen, and got the same result for the UTM tested with welded specimen.

the rotational degree of freedom of the reference nodes is not restrained.

i am trying to simulate sheet metal bending.

die and punch were given as analytically ridid body.

the following error occured ,

kindly clarify me regarding this.

How can we define "Bending Stiffness" in ABAQUS software

Hi guys,

I'm trying to simulate trsmition lines with and without dampers.

Who knows how can I define "Bending Stiffness" for a cable or beam?

thanks in advance
