Strain values transformed in a rotated x'y'-Cartesian coordinate system with ABAQUS

Dear All,

I'm trying to get strains in some specific points (along a path) from the xy-Cartesian coordinate system to a local x'y'-Cartesian coordinate system rotated through an angle (theta) which means transform the strains (Ex,Ey) to (Ex',Ey') as described in the attached figure, something I usually do manually with Mohr's circle and I wonder if I can do it directly with Abaqus ?

Thank you in advance !

Regards.

Mohammed.

Modeling finite number of mass/stiffness systems on an elastic media

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hello, 
I have to model finite number of springs with point masses on a soil layer in Abaqus representing resonators. I tried to use Reference Points on the soil layer and some Reference point above the layer and connect them with Spring/Dashpots using connecting two nodes option, I chose Line of action for the spring, then I add stiffness. In the next step I applied Point mass as inertia to the reference points above the soil.
