I have written a Fortran code for nonlinear viscoelasticity according to the Hughes' recurrence algorithm based on a total Lagrangian formulation. And a relaxation test is made. There is some deviation from the analytical solution(Theoretically the stress response should be an exponential decay plus a constant, isn't it?). The numerical ultimate stress is larger than the analytical one. As a larger initial strain is applied, the deviation is smaller. For a inital strain of 10%, there is almost no difference between the num. and analy. solution. What can account for this?
i am doing static analysis on a pick and carry crane, i need to find the pin forces. for this i created entity set with the nodes where the forces are to be derived and ran a static analysis in ansys.In order to derive the forces , i first picked the entity set and then applied the nodal loads from the list result options. the result that i got was not fine. it states there was zero forces on the pins, but its not.i need to find the pinforces, so kindly let me know , how to do it.
I want to simulate a problem with abaqus,but during runing of my project,percent of process not increas for axample when i change mesh sizes to biger runing go up to 50 % and when i change mesh sizes to smaller than the previos size,it occure again but in 25%
is there any one that know about this problem,i'm trying to solve it for 2weeks but i cann't.
i m, arun sahu student of IIT kharagpur.my mtech thesis is effect of dynamic loading on slope stability analysis in open cast mines.i hav startted my work using software ABAQUS.can i give velocity as input in abaqus?
and here i just want to give trapezoidal form of load up to 2 sec.so plz help me in these ...............
I just finished extrusion process simulation in ABAQUS with the input of stress-strain data. Now I want to retrive the strain increment of certain element during each deformation increment. Surely one can write straininc to a *.txt file when simulating with VUMAT. But the simulation of extrusion will be extremely slow with VUMAT. So How can I get the strain increment when simulating with the input of stress-strain data?
I am trying to model a sheet of Poly Vinyl Butryl (PVB), which is a viscoelastic material in ANSYS. I have all the regular properties like elastic, shear and bulk modulus, poisson ratio, denstiy and damping factor. I also have a stress- strain curve of PVB. With all this data, is it possible for me to find the various constants in the viscoelastic models using ANSYS?
I want to know how i can analyze the acoustic and noise problems with Abaqus? can anyone recommend me some valuable tutorials or documents to start? or is there any superior software in order to work on these subjects?
Recently I have modelled a 2D block of soil, at the first step of analysis the soil block subjected to a gravitational load (Gravity) and gravitational stresses generated in the soil block, at the second step, a little rectangular part of soil block removed and currently a concrete block with same size of removed soil embedded on the soil block. this concrete block to be subjected a surface loading.
I am trying to run a VUMAT subroutine for isotropic hardeining, whenever I input the command "abaqus j=inp_name user=subroutine_name " the analysis begins, the ODB file is generated but in few secs the analysis exits with an error, and the error is..
Abaqus Error: The executable C:\ABAQUS\6.7-1\exec\explicit.exe
aborted with system error code 5.
The fact is that, debugging the subroutine I see the totaltime different from the steptime. I am using just one step and the .inp implementation is veryfied with a different user subroutine, so totaltime and steptime should be exactly the same (but they are not...)
The value of the total time is around 1e-8 and the value of the steptime is around 1e-55.
I'm a newer of Abaqus. I was trying to compute a simple compression problem using Mohr-Coulomb model. I found the slope of stress-strain curve from the results is double of that defined in the input file. I don't know what's cause it or my understand of the slope is wrong.
Only one 8 node C3D8 element is involved. To simplify the question, let the friction angle be 0, it reduces to a Tresca model actually. The material is defined as:
