Nice and low-cost introductory texts

There are two very nice companion texts on continuum mechanics and nonlinear elasticity printed by Dover recently: "Continuum mechanics" by Spencer and "An introduction to the theory of elasticity" by Atkin and Fox. Great and fairly affordable reading!

Runing of input file

Dear friends,

if i have one input file i will import by file---model---inputfile

the i will see what they did in othermodules, for learning from exapmle problem

but if i have morethan one input file mean main input file and node information and element information both are seaprate input for reduc thesize of file.

how to import via part--model--

so how to merge this more than one input file 

contact & Geometric non linearity

I am looking for acadmic material to address contact & Geometric (Large deformation) non-linearity problem. Can anyone provide the material to address these two concept in details.

Neuber Plasticity correction


Can we used Neuber Plasticity correction method to composite material to estimate equivalent elasto-plastic stress from linear elastic stress results ?

Can anybody provide some document which support the usability of Neuber method to composite ?


Notes On Linear Static Analysis & Dynamic Analysis

Hi friends i am new user and 1 year experienced guy in CAE field in  Pune, India.

    i wants some tips/notes in Linear Static Analysis & non Linear analysis.

 Tips/ Notes about softwares like MSc nastran, Abaqus will be useful for me. So plz tell me how can i obtain them.

elastomer gasket life prediction

my project is life prediction of elastomer gaskets in ic engines using fea.     how can i select the constitutive model and the life prediction associated with which mechanism whther stress relaxation, stress softening or  excessive creep


Analysis and Optimization

I m Manoj, doing my Mtech in CAD/CAM. I  m doing my project work in design analysis & optimization of seatback of  car seat. I want the information about rear impact & theory material for the same.

Thank's all in advance.

How to import Ls-Dyna files(*.k) to Abaqus CAE 6.7 Edu version

How to import what i beleive is Ls-Dyna files with an extension (.k) in to Abaqus CAE 6,7 edu version?? . Any free translaters are available or can it be done with Abaqus itself ??

 Thx in advance

Concreate Prestress Model Not converge in step Loading

Dear Sir,


             I 've mater thesis project about prestress concreate bridge. On the first step I used Bolt load for represent prestress on Tendon

to hold all bridge block. And second step I apply load on vertical load such as 3 point bending test. On the first step I can run it completed. But on the second step it not converge. I need some comment for help mesolve this problem


                                                                                                                        Thanks you 

Adhesive modeling in ANSYS


Anybody knows how to model Adhesive between two block in ANSYS? Please help me out by suggesting the approprate method(s). 

I will welcome any appeal for clarification, required in this question.




Deformation 'Gradient', Right/Left Cauchy Green Compatibility

I post some (hand-written) notes on compatibility conditions for both small and finite strains that I have used for helping me in lecturing. These may be useful for our student friends on imechanica. I also post a paper on compatibility conditions for the Left Cauchy-Green field in three dimensions as well as the paper by Janet Blume on the same subject.

Modal analysis of reactor internals of PWR

In Modal analysis of reactor internals of PWR how the mass of moving water will be added in the structure in ansys.

finite element analysis

Can i have some notes on FEM & FDM?

I am a ew member

   I am a first year student of civil school in Myanmar.

I wanna get knowledge from all of you about civil engineering. Please show me the way to the success by a civil engineer .If u have something to guide me,u can send email

     thanks to all

Brief Outline of Topics

A Sample Program in WARP 3D needed!


I am using WARP 3D for an FEA analysis and am getting lost in setting coordintae propeties as the material in manual is not well connected.

I have to solve a crack growth for a contact problem in it. Plz attach a sample code in WARP 3D(complete) if anyone of you have worked with it before.


Mat_54_55 (LS DYNA material model)

I would like to know the difference between Effective Strain, Effective Plastic Strain and Effective Failure Strain.

crash/error message

Could anyone let me know the reason why Abaqus/CAE closes with the crash/error message when you submit or want to visualise your result.

...... I am new in the use of the Abaqus software

Hi Every one,

It is immense pleasure to meet all you in this technical forum.

I have a basic query in strength of materials

This is about of short beam
