This study demonstrates a simulation of an integrated multilink suspension system model in
Abaqus. The model is assessed in Abaqus to determine the suspension strength and fatigue life of each individual link. This topological design optimization is executed for this multilink suspension model using ATOM to determine the critical load path, alternative concept designs, and locations for mass reduction in order to meet the performance requirements.
This paper describes the parameter-based geometrical optimization of a thrust collar bearing. The thrust bearing, for example, has to carry the whole axial force of the rotor with only minimal deformation of the collar surface over the turbocharger’s complete operating range.
This paper discusses a method to address this challenge by the creation of a moving

This paper examines the performance characteristics of Abaqus 6.11 release for the latest GPU computing technology. The results are provided for finite element models with material, geometric and boundary nonlinearities relevant to current practice in the oil and gas industry, on workstation configurations, including a network of workstations.
I have some questions concerning the VUMAT subroutine, I run successfully an
analysis on one element with one integration point,
so my first question is how to code for several integration points (
nblock concerns only the material points not the integration points)?
My second question is how to write for datas dependent of temperature (like Young and shear modulus)??
Thank you all for your answers.
