[Newton-Raphson Iteration in Transient Thermal Analysis

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 


I have been quite confused about this for sometime now. It
has not been mentioned clearly in the books/references that I have
looked into.

In transient thermal analysis with implicit scheme
or the Crank Nicolson scheme, are there Newton Raphson iterations based
on the residual vector in every time-step?

Iterations in VUMAT

Dear all,

I' m trying to make a model in VUMAT for shape memory alloy based on Lagoudas 's thermomechanical constitutive model. It seems that It's necessary an iteration to evaluate the thermoelastic prediction.

My questions are : is it possible to use an iterative loop in the VUMAT or it's better to avoid it??Could someone suggest me a different way so that I can avoid the iterative loop?

Many thanks,
