VUMAT of Drucker Prager, help needed please..

Hi Everyone,

                    I have written Drucker Prager in VUMAT version as shown below..but still there are some deviation with the original in built version of ABAQUS. I have all the notes how i derived these equation.could you please show me where the code has gone wrong or have i missed a critical point in here..i tried my best to spot the error but could not..may be you all experts could find it. Thank you very much.

Hello together,

my professor just failed me in an oral exam. It was shwn a graph of a piezometric headline that increased. I said that its because of an increase of the diameter of the tube. He said afterwards:

Nominal vs. net strength

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I have difficulty accepting the definition of "nominal strength" and "net strength" given in Shigley's Mechanical Engineering Design.

Consider a plate of width w, thickness t, with a hole of diameter d centered at w/2, loaded with force F.  

Shigley's says: the "net stress" is \sigma_net=F/(wt) and the "nominal stress" is \sigma_nominal=F/((w-d)t). ==> I think he is wrong!

According to: http://dictionary.reference.com/

New educational program: MSc Advanced Dynamics of Discrete and Continuum Systems

St. Petersburg State Polytechnic University (Russia) opens a new MSc program in mechanics and mathematical modelling. The program is designed for training highly professional scientists and engineers with the theoretical background and practical experience in theoretical mechanics, computational mechanics, IT, mathematical modelling and simulations, and distributed computing.

Bridgman and tensile test

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Dear all I came up with some stress distributions which exist in a cylindrical specimen in a tensile test. However, I cannot understand how these formulas were gotten. There is a reference to a Bridgman paper (1944). Is there anyone who can give some inputs abouts this?

 

Thanks in advance

Novice ABAQUS user seeking advice on damaged plasticity reinforced concrete model

Hi
all,

 I
am an ABAQUS novice working on a graduation project.  My model is a
reinforced concrete Tee-joint with steel rebars and stirrups embedded to the
concrete.  The concrete is modeled using the Damage-Plasticity model, with
mostly default suggested values.  The elastic and plastic values are
derived from experimental values.  In addition to the embeddment, the
column and the beam is tied together using the tie command.  The model is
subjected to an axial load as well as a displacement force. 

New introductory course in structural mechanics opens on edX

2.01x: Elements of Structures is a new introductory course in structural mechanics that just started on edX. Anybody can  register  to audit the course for free. 

Course material includes lecture videos, tutorials, example problems, recitation problems with video walkthrough, homework problems, "boardnotes" (condensed lecture notes) and synoptic tables.

Homogenization - If materials in the model are isotropic, is it possible to get truly anisotropic resulting material?

Hello,

I read that "In general, even if the materials on the micro-level are isotropic, the effective 

material can show anisotropic behavior. A general anisotropic linear elastic material 

may have twenty one independent material parameters.''

 

If I understand my results correctly then simple structures like ''ball in the unit cell'' result in orthotropic material.

I am a bit puzzled - what would be the simplest structure that would result in anisotropic material behaviour?

 Dear all,

 Sometimes, we can see the conception of Mandel Stress, I wonder

What is mandel stress? How to use it?

Thanks.

Please recommend a good mechanics of material book

I am teaching mechanics of materials to sophomore. However, our students do not have a separate static course. They get a some exposure to free body diagrams in particle dynamics. I am currently using the book by Gere and Goodno. But I found that both the teaching and learning experience were not good. Thanks a lot in advance for your suggestions!

Hi,



 I'm trying to simulate a picture frame shear test using ABAQUS and I have landed up with some problems for which I haven't been able to find any solution from almost a week. Any help would be much appreciated!



So, here's the problem:

Isotropic hardening law

Hi all,

I have come across the two relations where aim to describe the isotropic hardening of a material

Power law:

R = Kεpn R is the variation in stress from initial yield, εp is the plastic strain where K is the strenght coefficient and n is the strain hardening exponent as observed in Ramberg Osgood equations.

Exponential law:

R = R∞ [1-e(-bεp)] where R∞ is the saturated value of the R variation, b is the rate at which the sauration is reached.

Workshops or summer school in FSI using meshless methods

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hello everyone,

 I am a doctorate student working with meshless methods for fluid flow. I would like to attend a summer school or workshops that can enrich my knowledge in FSI and meshless methods for FSI. I would really appreciate if anyone could recommend me a good school around Europe. As far as I have searched I was unable to find courses in the internet.

Thanks for your help,

Regards
