Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian Model (CEL) in Abaqus/Explicit

Hi everyone;

I'm trying to simulate FSW plunge state using Abaqus/Explicit, Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian technique.

As you can see in the picture, NT11, PEV and EVF are calculated. But the problem is that the elements in base metal are not deformed. In other words, the base metal elements which are in contact with PIN remained intact and are not deformed.

Anyone could help me with this?

tank sloshng- harmonic excitation

I am working on a project relating to sloshing of rectangluar tank in 2d, given a harmonic base excitation. I am using CEL tecnique of abaqus.

Can u tell me how to apply the harmonic load to the tank base and any suggestions regarding the project? 

Strain Rate Calculation in CEL


I am trying to calculate the strain rate in Coupled Eulerian Analysis Using ABAQUS. I want to Calculate it through Plastic strain as strain rate in vuhard is not working properly. I want to fix the strain in state variable for a time period but with analysis, it is updated automatically. Is there any options to keep strain fixed for a time period?

 Any idea will be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.


Designing Safer Vehicles with Realistic Simulation of Airbag Deployment

Airbags are one of the major protection systems used in a car crash. They play one of the most important roles in preventing severe injuries and fatalities during vehicle crashes. The advancement of new technology and airbag regulations necessitates that airbags be tested for safety in all kinds of scenarios, including situations where the occupant interacts with the airbag before it is fully deployed.

abaqus, cel, coupled eulerian lagrangian, fluid flow

I am trying to model a tube which is filled with liquid that is being crushed.  I am using Coupled Eulerian Lagrangian to model the problem in abaqus, and there are a few distortions/errors in the model.  I am using symmetry to model only quarter of the model.  The liquid actually comes out from the sides of the tubes as the two attached pictures show.  


Zoom in from the side.  It shows the eulerian elements coming out of the tube
