I am a student and I need to simulate compact tension test so as to obtain the fracture toughness using ABAQUS. I would have to compare the fracture toughness value from ABAQUS with values obtained from experiment.
I have been trying to model the compact tension test for weeks without sucess. Can anyone give me the step by step description of how to model the compact tension test
