Abaqus - Job aborts reporting that it can't change the current working directory.


I have an Abaqus 6.12-3 installed on a Windows 8 64-bit system.
Everything works smoothly. I am easily able to take control of the CAE
and model, define loads, steps, sections and jobs. The problem is while
running the jobs. The job aborts splashing an error "Unable to change
the current working directory to
C:\Users\ANIABU~1\AppData\Local\Temp\Ani Abu_I-beam_3876." This happens
with all the jobs. Rarely does the job complete successfully, but I am
unable to understand the underlying procedure. I did not request any

Two PhD student positions at The University of Sydney, Australia

Two PhD student positions at Particles and Grains Laboratory, The University of Sydney, Australia
The research project is concerning the micromechanics of granular materials, which include time-dependent deformation of geo-materials, thermal-mechanical behaviour at elevated temperatures, and transport phenomena in porous media. In this project, the main objectives are to characterise and understand fundamental deformation mechanisms from the grain level, and develop material models with grain-scale information with multi-scale approaches using simulations and experiments.
