## Abaqus Python : reading odb file for field frame data

Hi,

I am running a python script to do some post processing on Abaqus odb file. While running it on Abaqus/Explicite output file I found it was taking more than usual time. And after timing the run I got the surprise that the most time consuming thing what just to read the time value for each frame. I have the script below.

def main():

odb=openOdb('F:/Scripting/.../.../Example.odb')

## Postdoc/PhD position in Computational (solid and structural) Mechanics in Tel Aviv University

Recently developed mathematical tools based on the discrete Fourier transform will enable modeling of fracture phenomenon in materials with periodic hierarchical microstructure.

The postdoc position is for one or two years, and PhD is a usual Phd program.  More info on the project is in attached file.

## FINITE ELEMENTS IN PLASTICITY: D. R. J. OWEN E. HINTON - Source Code

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica:

Hello Everyone,

Does any one have the source code of this book.

FINITE ELEMENTS IN PLASTICITY: Theory and Practice by D. R. J. OWEN & E. HINTON .

I need it to understand the plasticity implementation in FEA.

Thanks

Ravi

## Eigenerosion for static and dynamic brittle fracture

In contrast to many numerical methods, the eigenerosion approach yields a convenient description of fracture handled in the postprocessing part of a Finite Element Analysis (FEA). Its fully energetic formulation avoids the introduction of extra degrees of freedom to model fracture propagation. Following previous works on eigenerosion, in this publication, a modified formulation of eigenfracture it is introduced, where it is distinguished between compression and tension loaded state.
