Hello, I have to model finite number of springs with point masses on a soil layer in Abaqus representing resonators. I tried to use Reference Points on the soil layer and some Reference point above the layer and connect them with Spring/Dashpots using connecting two nodes option, I chose Line of action for the spring, then I add stiffness. In the next step I applied Point mass as inertia to the reference points above the soil.
Hi, I'm new user of ABAQUS. I'm trying to develop a model that involve one further output variable (the degree of cure of a polymer). I thought to use the subroutine UEXTERNALDB to write and read from an external file the array containing the values of this output variable in each element. But I couldn’t find out how to call this subroutine in the .inp file. Does anyone have any suggestion for my problem?
I have some serious issues with some of my models in Abaqus 6.14. I need to simulate shear failure to investigate the influence of concrete strength and fracture energy on the size effect. So far, everything went good. I calculated almost 100 models without any problem with exactly the same model (only materials changed). But: For the combination of concrete strength fck=50MPa and a fracture energy of Gf=60N/m or Gf=80N/m, the calculations will stop after a short time although the .odb file shows only some minor bending cracks in the beam
As title, I wondering if the problem can be solved with only material residual stress but no other external load applied?
After several trials, Abaqus returns message "MASS OR DIFFERENTIAL STIFFNESS MATRIX IS COMPLETELY NULL. THE EIGENPROBLEM CANNOT BE SOLVED. IN A *BUCKLE ANALYSIS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE IS THAT A NONZERO LOADING PATTERN WAS NOT SPECIFIED VIA *BOUNDARY, *CLOAD, *DLOAD, ETC,. SEE Eigenvalue Buckling Prediction IN THE ABAQUS/STANDARD USERS MANUAL"
We're running a series of free workshops at the AMP Technology Centre in Rotherham (June 27th), the University of Liverpool (June 28th) and the University of Leeds (June 29th) this month, where we'll be explaining the benefits of Simpleware for working with 3D image data.
There are a lot of sample UMAT subroutines for plane strain or 3D problems. However, it is difficult to find an example for the plane stress problem online. Even the UMAT manual does not provide enough information. I have tried the UMAT subroutine for the plane stress problem for a while. The following remarks may be useful for collegues who have interest.
1. The stress components σ11, σ22, σ12 should be returned to UMAT. The other three stress components equal to zero, known as the basic assumption of the plane stress problem.
I model a brb(Buckling restrained brace) in Abaqus but my question is How to put concrete in a brb or How do I define the concrete inside the brb that work together? i use tie constraint But there isn't any stress for concrete! i use static,General for analysis! is it correct?
