# residual stress

## Is it possible to solve buckling in Abaqus with only residual stress defined as predefined load?

Hi Sirs,

As title, I wondering if the problem can be solved with only material residual stress but no other external load applied?

After several trials, Abaqus returns message
"MASS OR DIFFERENTIAL STIFFNESS MATRIX IS COMPLETELY NULL. THE EIGENPROBLEM CANNOT BE SOLVED. IN A *BUCKLE ANALYSIS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE IS THAT A NONZERO LOADING PATTERN WAS NOT SPECIFIED VIA *BOUNDARY, *CLOAD, *DLOAD, ETC,. SEE Eigenvalue Buckling Prediction IN THE ABAQUS/STANDARD USERS MANUAL"

## Through thickness residual stress

I am modeling through thickness residual stresses as follows:
*Initial Conditions, Type=Stress, Section Points
all_elements, 1, 50,25, 0
all_elements, 2, 50,25, 0
all_elements, 3, 50,25, 0
all_elements, 4, 50,25, 0
.
.
ABAQUS documentation 6.14:

Data lines for TYPE=STRESS, SECTION POINTS:

First line:

Element number or element set label.
Section point number.
Value of first stress component.
Value of second stress component.
Etc., up to three stress components.
I got this warning:

## Residual stresses in elastic medium upon uniform cooling

Hi All,

I am a student working on a project involving the effect of residual stresses in elastic and viscoealstic materials. I have a related question: When an easltic body is heated to a certain temperature (say 400 deg C) and then cooled uniformly to room temperature (20 deg C) with a constant cooling rate "q", does this generate any "un-desirable" (residual) stresses within the elastic body? i.e at a steady state - room temperature, does the final stress state within the body would be non-zero? Else, it would eventually reach a state of zero stresses? How?

## [Abaqus]Residual Stress, Equlibrium step, Boundary conditions

Hello

Problem description: There is a simply supported(roller supports) shell element I-beam. There are lateral bracings too. All of this boundary conditions belongs to the Riks step(always last step in analysis).

Question: I have implemented triangular residual stresses by SIGINI subroutine, but I'm not sure what boundary conditions set up in preliminary equlibrium step. Should I include all of the lateral bracings in this step or maybe only roller support?

Thank You

## residual stress and strain definitions (through-thickness) in ABAQUS/Explicit

Hello everyone,

I need some help regarding the definition of initial residual stresses and plastic strains in a shell finite element (S4R) model in ABAQUS/Explicit.

I have determined the residual stress distributions and initial plastic strains and I need to assign these distributions to a given element set.

I understand I should be looking at:

*INITIAL CONDITIONS, TYPE=STRESS

Dear all Researchers,

I am writing regarding for the first time about the UAA(Unified analytical aspect) on Fatigue crack growth. The idea of this technique is this question : too many fatigue life prediction relations but still those are not perfect. on the other hand, new math ways still have not been the classical fracture mechanics. I am looking for some comments as response to this concern. Clearly, how we upgrade fracture mechanics theory using atomistic development in modeling fatigue propagation?

Regards,
