Incrementally linear constitutive model. Nonlinear solution procedure

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hello everyone,

My doubt is related with the obtenion of the true stress when using incrementally linear constitutive models (hypoelastic models). These models, alternatively to total stress strain models, related increment of strain and increment of stress. The predicted stress is obtained by adding to the previous stress the stress increment obtained by using the tangent matrix. By using total stress-strain models it is clear that the true stress is obtained by substituting the current strain into the constitutive equation. How do we do this for hypoelastic models?

Run GEBT online within a web browser

One can now run GEBT (Geometrically Exact Beam Theory), a general-purpose nonlinear composite beam solver, online within a web browser through cdmHUB.org. Users do not have to install the code on their own machine. And users can access to immediate support if run into any questions. You are welcome to try out the code and let me know any of your questions.

Problems with numerical integration of discontinuous functions

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hi everybody,

 I am a very beginnerin doing research :-) and my topic is about "micro indentation analysis using continuum dislocation theory". I am applying high-order finite element method for this nonlinear problem.

My plan is first writing a subroutine for the element. However, when I intend to compute the internal force by using Gauss integration, I see a problem with the integrand function of some index of the internal force vector. This integrand is discontinuous function. It is therefore, I cannot get a good approximation with the standard Gauss integration.

How to get inside the ABAQUS incremental/nonlinear static solver

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hi guys,

I'm working on an ABAQUS extension/plug-in of a sort and I'd like to replicate results for a single 4-node plane stress element produced by the ABAQUS incremental/nonlinear static solver.

I assumed the relationship is:
t[K] {Δx} = t+Δt {P} - t{F}

UEL ABAQUS Subroutine

Hi,

I'm stucking with my subroutine. May ask anybody to have a look the the file. 

I run a simple model that and try to run it,but an error message was appeared as below;   ***ERROR: USER SUBROUTINE UEL MISSING

 

I don't know what is the problem. I did locate the input (.inp) and user (.f) in the same folder and run it (abaqus job=.... user= ...ff int )

 

Hope to get help from anybody...

Coconuts, Blood Cells, Snail Armor - What do they have in common?

As the 2010 SIMULIA Customer Conference approaches, it reminds me of a thought-provoking presentation given by Dale Berry of SIMULIA at the 2009 SCC in London.

He reminded the audience, of engineers and researchers, that Realistic Simulation is not only good for evaluating mechanical behavior of product performance, but it’s also an indespenible tool for driving innovative research that improves our lives and society.

Progressive Failure Model

Hi

Am currently running Ansys analysis using shell181, and Tsai-Wu FC, have some good working first ply failure models

Trying to convert this into a progressive failure model, with no luck so far.

Anyone know something about this, how it could be done?

I suspect by looping, and fortran code, but I do not really have a clue..

Energy conservation in nonlinear finite element explicit dynamics

I am writing to ask about the state of the art in finite element simulation using nonlinear elasticity and explicit dynamics.

Consider, for instance, a 3-d simulation of a hyperelastic beam that's fixed on one end, then  twisted about its long axis by 360 degrees and released. If we apply no friction or viscosity, the sum of kinetic plus potential energy should remain constant as the material springs back and oscillates.

Which FEM codes do the best at conserving KE+PE for a simulation of this type?  If you drop the time step, can you get energy conservation to many significant figures, as one can with, for instance, molecular dynamics simulation? 

I'm curious because I've recently written my own 3-d nonlinear explicit dynamics code that provides very high precision energy conservation, and I'm wondering if it's any better or worse than the nonlinear explicit dynamics codes already available.
