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!
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.
I am currently investigating Prager hardening room which is stated as the simplist linear kinematic hardening rule. I was wondering if anyone has worked with this model and if so if you have managed to identify how to determine the constant used for the back stress equation
dα =C * dεp ( this is epsilon dot p which is the equivalent plastic strain)
Please can you let me know how to determine the constant C from experimental results?
One PhD position is available immediately in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Stony Brook University, NY, US.The research program focuses on the mechanics and multifunctional applications of 3D periodic composite materials including shape memory, acoustic/elastic wave propagation, and energy harvesting. The candidates with background in solid mechanics and finite element analysis are highly encouraged to apply.
I am currently working on my M.Sc Thesis project of fatigue lifcycle of Flex printed circuit boards which is composite material of Polymer & Metal.Want some help who has worked on this topic which deals with Viscoelastic & Plastic behaviour of materials under action of pure bending loads.Help & Guidance would be appreciated.Need to come up with an equation which has stress & strain relating to lifecycle of Flex printed circuit boards.
Primary data mining through Web of Science
reveals that the number of papers containing “continuum mechanics ” increases
rapidly these years. This is a very exciting fact to our mechanicians. Thus, I
wrote a short paper titled “The Renaissance of Continuum Mechanics”, which was just
published online via:
Has anyone followed the book Inelasticity of Materials by Arun Srinivasa?
I was interested in the way he used lumped parameter models to describe material behaviour in Chapter 3. Trying to follow his methodology I wanted to implement it for some experimental results I have.
However, I have faced an obstacle in trying to work out the hardening modulus of the the material in question. He has worked it out for his example case by curve fitting but I am just not getting the answer.
Hi, I want to ask you guys about how to model an unconfined conrete material with smeared crack model in abaqus 6.10, especially about what kind of parameter should I use and how much the value of parameter. I would really appreciate if you could give me some tutorial, explanation, or even an example of how should I model a smeared crack model in abaqus.
I have created a channel beam using 3D shell elements. It is subjected to two point loading each at 1/3rd length. I have performed STATIC RIKS analysis. Is it possible to draw bending moment diagram for this model? Orelse if i use section moments how can i interpret the maximum moment?
I have carried out eigen buckling analysis of cylindrical shell under axial compression under unit load using abaqus in model-1 and in model -2 i carried out riks analysis gave imperfection 0.2mm fotr shell thickness 2mm radius 0.25m,h=0.5 m after the 100 increment the the shell is subjected to load which is obtained from first buckling load in first mode here how to get the collapse load
