User-defined amplitudeS using UAMP subroutine in ABAQUS

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Dear all,

I need to use two user-defined amplitudes in my model in order to apply two separate variable-dependent forces on two separate partitions. I have been struggling with this for long now, and the documentation says "There is one exception in Abaqus/Standard: only one solution-dependent amplitude (used for superplastic forming) can be active during each step."

I see the possibility of defining multiple solution-dependent amplitudes in CAE, but in UAMP the variables such as ampValueOld, ampValueNew, etc. may take only one value.

Secondly i am carrying out Literature review Present days.reading API 650 and other standards.Suggestion requires in this area.

Please guide me in proper manner.in which way i should carry out the project in systematic way.

Newton Raphson for FEM

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hi,

I am currently working on a FEM  2d plane strain elastic model in matlab. The next step would be to use a non linear constiutive law (Mohr-Coulomb). As far as I have been reading non linearities, are solved with iteration schemes. My question is how to compute the tangent matrix with the N.Raphson method? I have seen only case for polynomials, but not for matrices.

Regards!

Predicting fracture energies and crack-tip fields of soft tough materials

Soft materials including elastomers and gels are pervasive in biological systems and technological applications. Whereas it is known that intrinsic fracture energies of soft materials are relatively low, how the intrinsic fracture energy cooperates with mechanical dissipation in process zone to give high fracture toughness of soft materials is not well understood. In addition, it is still challenging to predict fracture energies and crack-tip strain fields of soft tough materials.

Lateral torsional buckling of I beams with restraint

I am looking to model buckling of I steel beams with restraint in abaqus. But I do not know how to make rigid connections between the steel members. 

 

Why is the other beam( beam with fixed supports) not stressed? How do i define contact between the two beams.
