Hi, I am working on modeling wave propagation in ABAQUS/CAE.
I am not expert on ABAQUS and trying to figure out how it works.
I have a 2D Shell steel plate (1 centimeter by 1 centimeter) and try to obtain wave speed at any points of plate.
I put the material properties in and used ABAQUS/Explicit analysis.
Time steps are 1E-009 seconds and there are 2 steps (impulsed at the first step and propagates at the second step).
The load pluged at the amplitude with equaily spaced for 0.1 micro seconds (so it becomes impulse load).
