How to calculate Stress Intensity Factor for user defined material in abaqus?

Dear all,

I need to calculate SIF in abaqus for some user defined material but I am getting the below error:


Is their any other process to calculate the SIF in abaqus, in case we use user defined material. Please guide me.

Thanks in advance

Quantification of ferrite-martensite interface in dual phase steels: A first-principles study

The ferrite-martensite interfacial energy and equilibrium interfacial length as a function of martensite carbon content are assessed using first-principles atomistic simulations. The weight percent of carbon in the martensite phase was implicitly varied from 0.6 to 1.8 wt percent by modifying the lattice constant of body-centered tetragonal (BCT) martensite according to Kurdjumov and Kaminsky’s empirical expressions. With increasing carbon content, a decrease is found in both the interfacial energy and in the equilibrium distance between ferrite and martensite interfaces.


I'm using the ABAQUS DLOAD subroutines, and I'm curious what the dimensions of the 

volume distributed body load should be. 


I understand ABAQUS uses [LT-2] for GRAV body loads. However, I'm curious if the 

units for BZNU acting over a volume should be [density]*[acceleration] or just



Thank you,


numerical modelling using Abaqus 6.14

<p>What is static riks solver?? Please explain in details.. As I am a learner of abaqus I get problem understanding some things, like arc length, &nbsp;increment in static riks etc.. I find that it is very useful for simulating collaps behaiour.. I wish to do a thrust experiment regarding geological setup... Please help and guide me..&nbsp;</p>
<p>Thank you&nbsp;</p>
