Hi All,

Recently I've got a problem with coordinate transformation matrix in ABAQUS.

Let's say you have a beam element with 2 nodes and 3 DOFs per node (imagine a Timoshenko beam). When you are rotating this beam to have some angle with horizontal line, based on DOFs and rotation angle, ABAQUS is applying a coordinate transformation matrix to the beam to give you the results in global coordinate system (transform between global and local coordinate system).

Is there any way that I can change/edit that coordinate transformation matrix that ABAQUS is applying or not?

I would appreciate any kind of help for this.

Thanks,
