1073741819 error code in ABAQUS

Dear all,

I'm using UEL in ABAQUS. The UEL works perfectly as far as I have 256 time increments (each 1e-6 sec). When I'm trying to increase the time increments (let's say 512 with the same 1e-6 sec per increment) Abaqus gives me error code 1073741819.

I'm running Abaqus 6.14.2 with Intel Fortran Composer XE 2013 on a Windows 7. CPUs are 3rd generation.

I would appreciate if you could help me to figure it out.

Best Regards,


hi all,

        i am very new to abaqus and i want to simualte sliding wear between a pin and a disc. i found from the literature that by using user subroutines we can calculate the wear. i am not getting how to use a user subroutine , can any one expain how to use user subroutines in the CAE. is there any simple example problems in understanding this user subroutine functions. thanks in advance. 

Question for post-processing after each increment and return it back to calculation (non-local damage)

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Dear everyone:

  I am trying to use a nonlocal damage criteria to simulate the crack growth, which can reduce the mesh dependency.

In abaqus, VUMAT/UMAT is doing computation at integration point for each increment, but I want to do the post-processing after each increment to get the non-local state variable and return this value back to calculation.    

Such as taking average value of one state variable within a distance about the center of one element, then return it back to another state variable to this element.

User subroutine in fortran 90 for abaqus

Hi Abaqus experts

I am hoping that you can help me getting a element user subroutine writen in fortran f90 to work in Abaqus. I have made the simplest 8 noded brick element element that i can think of. I has a zero thickness and only has some simple definitions of the parameters ESTIFF,RHS,SVARS and PNEWDT. I have made a model with one single element of this user element where the upper part is displaced from the lower part which are fixed.

When I try to run the model I get the following message in the log file:
