Thermomechanical coupled simulation

Hi all,

 

I am trying to input a termperature field as initial conditions in
abaqus, to use the temperature distribution from a previous temperature
simulation in an mechanical simulation. But when I check the Temperature
values in the mechanical simulation i get great differences between the
nodal values (NT) and the element values (TEMP).

Does anybody know the reason of this problem?

 

Can it be related to the element typ? So the TEMP values are the avereged values from NT?

 

Kind regards!

Temperatures updating in Abaqus (V)umat.

As we know, Abaqus/(v)umat provides the temperatures at each material point at the end of the increment, but in a thermo-mechanical problem, the heat induced by plastic deformation is unknown before the plastic strain is calculated. So, How the temperatures at material points in abaqus are updated?

Thanks in advance.

Temperature dependence of the dielectric constant of acrylic dielectric elastomer

The dielectric constant is an essential electrical parameter to the
achievable voltage-induced deformation of the dielectric
elastomer. This paper primarily focuses on the temperature
dependence of the dielectric constant (within the range of 173 K
to 373 K) for the most widely used acrylic dielectric
elastomer (VHB 4910). First the dielectric constant was investigated
experimentally with the broadband dielectric spectrometer
(BDS). Results showed that the dielectric constant first increased
with temperature up to a peak value and then dropped to a
relative small value. Then by analyzing the fitted curves, the Cole–Cole
dispersion equation was found better to characterize the
rising process before the peak values than the Debye dispersion

cast iron + aluminium

Does anyone know where i can find the following?

-yield and ultimate tensile strength of cast iron and aluminium as a function of temperature

-fracture energy as a function of temperature for both metals

 *the fracture energy i am referring to is for damage modelling in XFEM

 

Cheers

Need help in resolving an ABAQUS error about degrees of freedom of a temp-disp process

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

ABAQUS - DEGREE OF FREEDOM 11 AND AT LEAST ONE OF DEGREES OF FREEDOM 1 THRU 6 MUST BE ACTIVE IN THE MODEL FOR *COUPLED TEMP-DISP. CHECK THE PROCEDURE AND ELEMENT TYPES USED IN THIS MODEL.  

Hi,

Heat flux per unit area due to frictional dissipation (ABAQUS)

Hi all

I have a 2D model containing 2 2-D blocks rubbing on each other, producing heat at the interface. (Coupled temperature-displacement analysis in ABAQUS 6.8-1). This works fine, as the temperature on the contact surfaces in increasing.


Now, I want to get the instantaneous the heat flux per unit area due to frictional dissipation as a field output. Is there any standard subroutine or any other way to achieve that? There is no such a variable included in the standard ones.


Thanks!
Andreas

How does temperature become a number

An essential step to “understand” thermodynamics is to get to know temperature: how temperature comes down as an abstraction from empirical observations, and how it rises up as a consequence of the fundamental postulate.  I have just updated my notes on temperature.  The beginning paragraphs of the notes abstract temperature from empirical observations.  These paragraphs are posted here.
