Compatibility: Surface-Based Cohesive Behavior in UEL

Hi all,


I have been trying to model the surface interaction between two blocks of material using surface-based cohesive elements (*cohesive behavior). This works well in ABAQUS CAE (standard) when I set the material properties as "Mechanical, Elastic" so no problem with that.

However, I would now like to use the material properties from a fortran code. To do this, I was planning on defining the elements using *UEL with an overlay to record all the values. Is this compatible with cohesive zone elements? 


Many thanks for your help,



Hi @Lucy_E. Its surprising that this issue had been existing since 2013. I just thought of doing something similar and got stuck there. Did you solve it? Let me know
