I would like to know if there is any chance to simulate orthotropic nonlinear viscoelasticity/creep of CFRP in ANSYS (e.g. by means of user programmable features (UMAT subroutines) or using the software DIGIMAT or others)? For the nonlinear part I would like to use Schapery's method.
i am working on crushing of thin-walled section. i want to simulate quasi-static crushing in LS DYNA. for that i did scale the mass, but somehow it is not showing the deformation. i get deformation of .03mm for tube of 90mm. what might have been gone wrong?
I'm an MSc. student at Bogazici University, Turkiye and I'm working on a thesis project about the failure behaviour of fiber reinforced laminated composite plates under different loading types. The material which we use are AS4 fiber reinforced prepregs and their mechanical properties are the following:
Hi, we're trying to model with ABAQUS a reinforced concrete beam under a rolling load. We want to investigate the compressive low cycle fatigue of reinforced concrete elements under a variable bending moment. We are using a Static Step (total step time: 18000 sec) and a concentrated force applied on the middle cross section with the following load history*:
I am writing to introduce DNAD, a Fortran module I wrote for automatic differentiation of analysis codes written in Fortran including those legacy codes written in Fortran 77. Although only implementation using Fortran 90/95 was carried out, it is straightward to translate it to a language you like such as c/c++.
Hi, I am doing a simulation of a reservoir, and I want to calculate the water quantity on a boundary. But I find that it seems ABAQUS cannot output the results directly. If I were wrong, then how to output the seepage quantity, or if ABAQUS cannot do this, how can I get the result?
i am using Deform 3D for my analysis but wats the problem in this software i cant input the material properties,flow stress of the material so the validation with theoritical becomes difficult so if anybody doe know about this how to input the matl pproperties and force of the press please help me
I m new to composite material analysis, I am doing a project for wind turbine analysis in ansys. The wind turbine contains total 96 layers of two different material which is stacked alternatlly. i dont know about the modelling and analysis procedure of composites. i don't understand how to connect the surfaces.
I am new in ABAQUS. I am trying to find the thermal stresses created by change in temparature of 50'C for lainate consisting of [90/+45/-45/0]s configuration. Eventually what I intend to do is find the stresses under a simple uniaxial load which also consider the change of temperature while calculating the stresses in each ply. I have the material data for the coefficinet of thermal expansion both for longitudinal and trnasverse directions (alpha_11 and alpha_22).
Recently, I indulged myself into the progressive damage simulation of composite materials. I firstly used the USDFLS to create several fields to define certain kinds of damage, such as fiber crack, matrix crack, shear damage and delamination. One curious thing that I experienced into this is that ABAQUS/Standard informed me that "Stiffness defined by engineering constants is not physically reasonable. Check choice of poisson's ratios". I checked the data and changed some to comply with the rules of the transversely isotropic materials and the program proceeded.
I would like to get informations about ABAQUS aqua which is being used for offshore analysis, if any one have anything about that subject including (tutorials , examples and notes ) I would be grateful to him in providing me with.
I am working with a simulation of a thin component bonded to a thick
component in ABAQUS 6.7. Here I utilize beam (B21) elements bonded to
plane strain elements (CPE4R) using a *TIE constraint, and another
simulation that uses plane stress elements (CPS4R) bonded to plane
strain elements (CPE4R) using a *TIE constraint. In both cases the
plane strain elements represent the slave surface for the bonded
I am having some troubles with the extrude command in Abaqus cae. I have modeled my sample as a 2-D geometry and now I want to move to 3-D for the same section. But I am having trouble extruding my 2-D section. It seems to me very weird and far to complicated the extrusion process in abaqus for such a simple task...
