Why a 2D and 3D model using a coupled thermal displacement element in ABAQUS give different results? Can any one help me?

I am modeling a rectangular plate placed on a hot plate using a coupled temperature displacement type of analysis in abaqus. I have modeled it in 2D as well as 3D. I have defined a contact between hot plate and rectangular specimen. But my 2D and 3D results are different. Can any one help me in clearing my doubt. Thanks in advance.

Using LEFM for analyzing crack in a non linear material

Dear all,

I am trying to find the crack tip SIF in Polyurethane which an elastomer. It behaves like a nonlinear elastic material with the initial small linear elastic region. Can I use a multi-parameter stress field equation (William's crack tip stress field equation) to get the SIF of the crack tip.

Thank you
