Questions related to Abaqus
My attempt was that I created 2 Reference Points at the centers of the two base of the cylinder and made a wire between them. Using that wire, I made a planar connector. But when I Provide displacement BC to the cylinder, it also moves above the plane.
I expected that the result would be something like the cylinder slides on the plane and due to the upward displacement, a stress is generated.
I believe there is something wrong with the way I made the connector. (I am very new to this software)
I am trying to model the combined effect of a static and dynamic load on a cantilever beam. I have calculated the dynamic response as follows
1) Natural frequency and mode shape extraction (modes 1-5), see image
2) Steady-state modal analysis gives the steady-state response across a range of frequencies. I am looking for deflection with direct model damping of 2%. If I am not mistaken, this form of analysis require a load independent of time and essential applies harmonic loading to each of the natural frequencies and calculates the response at each frequency.
I am unable to apply a static load at this stage (steady-state modal dynamics) to observe the combined effect. See image for the deflection as a function of frequency. This is precisely the plot I want if I was just considering dynamic response. But surely, this would change significantly with a static load.
I tried setting up a static load in a step prior to the frequency and steady-state modal dynamics step but that was of no use.
Any tips on how to do this.
FYI, I am actually trying to model a chassis experiencing cyclic and static loading from an engine and am using this to fully understand the problem.
I am trying to do a simulation of a model (with static general and coupled temp-displacement steps) using a user subroutine (UMAT).
But when I run the job, this fails because it needs too many increments to complete the step.
Attached are some of the warnings I get.
Would anyone know how to fix this problem?
when we model the bond-slip behavior between reinforcement and concrete in ABAQUS, should the reinforcement always be modeled as a 3D solid element.?
Is it not possible if with Wire element type, because in my model used Wire element.? if possible with Wire element type, how do I model it in ABAQUS, and what contact type should I choose.?
I am relatively new in area of simulation and I have this basic doubt. I want to know the meaning of time when we are running static simulation. Static means load/BC don't change with time but we give values on time scale.(For abaqus, we define step with total time, initial increment, min/max. incerement) What does it actaully mean? Is it related to - how solver deals with problem and runs the simulation in background?
I am expecting your thoughts/inputs on this topic.
I want to connect two nodes by using a multipoint constraint element MPC184 ( rigid beam / rigid link)
at first, i tried connecting both nodes by a line and then mesh the line and give it MPC184 element attributes but I cannot create a line from node to node on ANSYS. Only from keypoint to keypoint.
The attached image shows what i mean.
how to fix that?
I have been modelling using concrete damage plasticity material in Abaqus 2021. After the analysis, I got DamageT values greater than 0.9, the max damage parameter. I've tried to restate the damage and strain columns together, but it doesn't solve the problem. Is there any other solutions?
I would be grateful if anybody could help me.
I'm trying to run my Abaqus simulation using gpus. I have a PC with AMD Ryzen™ 5 2400G & Radeon™ RX Vega 11 Graphics.
Calling the gpu from CAE and the Command window doesn't work. I have found a possible solution using CUDA, which I have not tried yet since it refers to NVIDIA hardware. Other posts suggest using OpenCL but I can not find how to download it.
Any ideas would be helpful!
Hello, I encounter a problem on abaqus linked to convergence. I even reduced the size of the mesh and decreased the values related to `` arc lengh increment '' but it's still the same, I still have convergence errors. thank you.
Does anyone have tutorial for Abaqus Additive Manufacturing simulation?
I want to simulate a 3d printed item (material of item = ABS plastic) and conduct stress analysis on it. However, I hardly can find any tutorial from Youtube and Google.
Does anyone know where to search for tutorials?
I need to model a Polycarbonate base adherend and on top of it we Injection mould a Polyamide material(Which acts as adhesive) and sticks very well to the polycarbonate(refer attached image). So I need to model this one in Abaqus and to find its peel strength and fracture energy. My questions are
is it possible to model this type in Abaqus?
Which type of test modelling of adherend that I need to consider SLJ, DCB, ENF?
Which method need to implement (Surface based cohesive), cohesive element, XFEM?
I am very new to this field and I want to know any reference books on determing peel strength adhesive joints in Abaqus.
I am using Abaqus and in meshing, I need distance from node to node, to be constant along Z axis. This can be seen in figures attached here. Yellow dotted lines represent 0.5 mm distance which I require and black solid lines represent mesh created by Abaqus (which varies along z axis). It is required to be parallel along x axis. As it can be seen that yellow dotted line (target distance) and black, elements boundary lines, do not coincide. So my way, is not working.
Does anyone know how node to to node distance can be kept same along Z axis despite asymmetric features in part geometry? Please comment.
Can 'assign stack direction' sort this problem out? I have tried but did not help.
I am a new user of ABAQUS/CAE and is working on ballistic impact simulation on fabric. I referred many research article for the same, but doesn't got the clear image about its simulation.
It would be very beneficiary for me if anyone can let me now how to do material modelling of a fabric or refer some good article.
Hi dear researchers
Im trying to model polymeric material, but the elastic module of that is not constant and varies with change in strain, this polymeric strip(membrane element) is embedded in soil as a reinforcement and tensile load will be applied to that, so I wanna know if for my purpose using property >> mechanical >> elastic >>Hyper elastic is suitable or not, because as I know entering stress -strain test data is possible in hyper elastic.
Im wondering if using hyper elastic requires any special conditions or not or any alternative( better) way for my purpose.
I would like to update the yield strength value in a UMAT subroutine in Abaqus. This would happen when a load is applied on an element, the deformation strain would be queried from a meta-model database, and depending on the deformation strain combinations returned by abaqus, the yield strength of the material in the function PROPS() would be updated from the database. I am very new to writing subroutines in ABAQUS. I was wondering if there is a way to implement such an algorithm to update the material properties in each time step. If so, how can I start tackling this issue?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I linked abaqus 2017 with visual studio Ultimate 2013 and intel parallel studio xe 2017 and checked abaqus verification. It all shows a correct pass
And I've coded a simple umat, but when I run a the job it shows: Problem during linking - Abaqus/Standard User Subroutines. This error may be due to a mismatch in the Abaqus user subroutine arguments. These arguments sometimes change from release to release, so user subroutines used with a previous release of Abaqus may need to be adjusted
And when I run it from the command prompt it shows: LINK: Fatal error LNK1181: Cannot open the input file 'oldnames.lib'
Can you help me please?
I am trying to study a contact behavior with Abaqus . but after my simulation I always find that the ETOTAL energy is not constant.
How can I verify that my my model is correct or no?!

If anyone can share a command for killing an active job. ?
I know the procedure of modeling modal analysis to obtain natural frequencies(I mean using Linear perturbation step>>frequency and without defining any other loading....) but the problem is all examples I have seen is just for model made of just one material(most examples for cantilever beam) but my model is consist of two or more material( 2layer soil and layer of polymer between these soil layers), for obtaining natural frequencies in this case, my exact question is: I have to run modal analysis for each material separately or all together?!
I should mention that the polymeric membrane part does not have any type of support and its just in interaction with soil( normal and tangential behaviour), and if I run the modal analysis for this part alone natural frequencies for polymeric membrane is zero. while the soil is fixed at bottom and sides and by running modal analysis once for soil alone and another time soil with polymer,the natural frequencies are the same for both conditions. so i'm willing to know any advise and special point to obtain natural frequencies procedure for model consist of two or more materials in abaqus.
I came across an additive manufacturing heat transfer FEM problem. In this problem, in each time step, a material is added to the current geometry. So, an amount of mass with a defined temperature is added to the whole geometry.
I heard about the Abaqus AM tool, but I would like to develop my own code. So I am wondering about the best method to solve this FEM? How can I define and update the stiffness matrixes? How can I reduce computational costs?
I appreciate any help or tip!

I just Installed Abaqus in my computer and Abaqus CAE 6.14 works fine. But, every time I submit a Job it runs for 2 seconds and then I get the following message:
The executable standard.exe aborted with system error code 1073741795. Please check the .dat, .msg, and .sta files for error messages if the files exist. If there are no error messages and you cannot resolve the problem, please run the command "abaqus job=support information=support" to report and save your system information. Use the same command to run Abaqus that you used when the problem occurred. Please contact your local Abaqus support office and send them the input file, the file support.log which you just created, the executable name, and the error code.
I looked for information already and It seems to be something related to memory allocation but I am not sure...
does anyone have ever get this error before? do you know anything about it? is there any solution??
Please I need your support.

What is the shell orientation mean in ANSYS APDL?
Does it mean that if I have a shell on the XZ plane then I set the orientation as 0 degrees as shown in the pictorial view
and if I have a shell on the XY plane then I set the orientation as 90 degrees?
Or does it mean something else? Like the direction of the fibers in the material?
I simulated a cylinder of length 75 and radius 2 in Abaqus using shell elements (S4R) for the cylindrical shell and solid elements (C3D10) for flanges. The connection between flanges and cylinder is done via shell-to-solid constraint. The thickness of the cylinder is varying from 0.03 at bottom to 0.013 at top. At top a concentrated lateral force of 100 is applied. Bottom edge is fixed.
I wanted to validate my results by comparing it with a beam. Thus, a beam is created of length 75. The thickness again is varying from 0.03 to 0.013. Same BC and load condtions are applied here. No influence of flanges here, just a straight beam divided into parts with different thickness. B31 elements are used.
A linear static analysis is followed. While displacements are close, I noticed something stange regarding Von Mises stresses. The location of S.Mises at both models is different. In cylindrical shell max Mises is at boundary while in beam model is above boundary. Any idea why is this happening? I was expecting also S.Mises for beam to be at boundary
I am trying to perform thermal analysis of dam using abaqus but i am not able to input the adiabatic heat rise in my Finite element model further for fully coupled model is there different type of element required, What should be the boundary condition, and will the input ambient temperature and adiabatic temperature rise combine o provide resultant temperature, also can i monitor crack development?
I want to simulate a wind turbine's tower model. The cylindrical part constructed using shell elements (S4R) and the flanges using solid elements(C3D10).Internal stiffneres also included using shell elemnts. Shell and flanges are connected via shell-to-solid constraints.Only geometric non linear analysis is considered with RIKS method.
However Abaqus give me the following warning:Excessive distortion at a total of 4732 integration points in solid (continuum) elements. This warning appears when initial RIKS step is 0.02 and maximum step is also 0.02.However, when I increase the initial step at 0.05 and maximum step at 0.05 I get no warning.
What is this error about? Can affect my results and why initial step has an influence? And how to solve it?
PS: I also upload my .inp file
Hi, i am doing hertzian contact 2D ball-on-flat analysis with axis symmetry elements by imposing concentrated load boundary conditions.
Interactions : surface to surface with small sliding, frictionless and hard contact properties are mentioned. Finite mesh size is used at contact point as shown in Figure.
When i am validating the FEM results with analytical values, my contact pressure (CPRESS) is with in 2 percent error. However, my shear stress(S12) value has 30 percent error. Can anyone help how to resolve this issue?
I am trying to understand Abaqus Benchmark example 1.19.2 - Crack proagation in a plate with a hole simulated using XFEM.
I ran the python script provided "crackprop_hole_lefm_xfem_cpe4.py" from the site: http://dsk.ippt.pan.pl/docs/abaqus/v6.13/books/bmk/default.htm?startat=ch01s19ach135.html
I want to try and output figure 1.19.2 - 4.
I have create a path --> each node starting from left to the end of the plate. Next, Tools > XYdata > Create Path > Selected defined Path (maybe issue here) > Define Field output and frame > Plot and I cannot get the same curve.
1. Crack path was not define properly.
2. Field output was defined wrongly. I'm assuming Mises?
3. Frame was defined wrongly.
I just want to learn to plot a load vs crack length curve.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Im trying to model dense sand which has peak friction angle and constant volume friction angle . As you k now if we plot shear stress - shear displacement(strain) of dense sand till reaching specific displacement curve ascends to the peak point(peak friction angle)and after that with slight reduction becomes constant(constant volume or residual friction angle). I wanna model the behaviour of soil accurately so my purpose is to define friction angle as a function of shear displacement. I searched and understood using SUBROUTINE (specially USDFLD) may help me but I have not work with subroutines at all and this is my first time however I linked vs code and intel R with abaqus and its completely ready for working.
I will be thankful to hear your helps and advises.
I want to connect the surfaces of two shell structures (shell rings). For that purpose I was thinking tie constraints. However I am not sure how to do it properly. For example how should I assign thickness offset of each shell part (bottom surface, top surface , middle surface) in order to avoid any inconsistencies?
I model high strength concrete slab under fire using abaqus. Spalling has important effect on the fire resistance of HSC. The question is how can model the spalling the concrete in abaqus?
I am trying to do a sensitivity analysis by xfem Abaqus but as I am increasing the number of seeds the number of cracks increased and even decreases. which is so strange, please let me know.
Generally mesh sensitivity means the criteria when our results don't depend on mesh size. But here strange is happening, first, the number of cracks should be one but it is having more (though I understand the reason those elements simultaneously having the same initiation stress) but is this actually correct? Please let me know.
Please see the attached where I am increasing the seeds.
I'm going to analysis of theorical RC beam by FE nonlinear analysis then verify the RC beam models with FEA softwares.
I have a complex model in solidworks and I want to do some analysis in Abaqus. So I exported it, but everytime whenever I am doing modal analysis, I am getting the error THREE FACTORIZATIONS FAILED IN A ROW AND CONTAINS KINEMATIC COUPLING.
BUT actually I haven't applied any interaction. Also using Subspace solver, the values are zero.
Please help me.
I am modeling a more than 100 years old truss railroad bridge using an Ansys or an Abaqus. This is a very interesting bridge to model. The members are made up of angles combined together to form a channel shape on either side of the cross-section.
Could you please advise how I could custom design this cross-section? Any advice on alternative ways of modeling such cross-section would be helpful as well.
Please see attached picture for the truss member.
I have taken submodel displacements from global elastic model. As the first inelastic cycle completes, I use a restart option. When i start 2nd cycle, using step=1, ABAQUS throws an error that step has to greater than step in previous run as its a restart file. If I change the step to (say 125), again ABAQUS throws an error saying it cannot find step 125 in global model. (Global model is a single cycle model with steps up to 124).
How to proceed further >?
I want to model a 3D rubber in Abaqus (dynamic explicit). When I run the model, the analysis is aborted before it starts and this error appears: “Analysis Input File Processor exited with an error”.
The Marlow model (in hyperelastic properties) is used in this modeling. It should be noted that when using other models (for example ogden model or polynomial model and etc.), this error does not appear and the analysis will be complete.
Can you please suggest a solution?
I'm looking to validate an experimental uniaxial stress-strain curve of a direct tension test on a concrete cylinder using the Concrete Damaged Plasticity model in Abaqus. The material data input follows both manual and literature instructions, with a choice of stress x crack-opening displacement relation for the tension stiffening behaviour.
For a '1D' model using bar elements to represent the concrete cylinder as a "pillar", the simulation mean outputs for stress and strain are a near-perfect match to the corresponding stress-strain curve for the input data (-> this curve was derived with Cornelissen et al. exponential law together with the characteristic element length outputted by Abaqus in the message file to go from crack-opening displacements to post-peak strain values).
However, results from 2D and 3D simulations of the 'same' concrete cylinder do not match their corresponding input stress-strain curves in the least.
I have uploaded an image to better show the divergences.
Has anyone encountered something similar and would know of anything that could be the cause of this?
I appreciate any help!

The model is very simple. The step is Dynamic Explicit. The step time is 0.01s, and the frame number is 4000(a little bit large). The odb file is only 5GB.
When I extract the data from the free body cut, it can only extract about 2000 frames and an error happens: ''Operation did not complete due to a memory allocation failure''.
My computer is the workstation. So, it's not hardware problem.
I have tried many solutions:
1. set Kernel memory limit from Tools->Options->Memory, I set the memory 1e9Mb. When outputting about 3000 frames, I met the same error.
2. set Kernel memory limit with python command: session.setValues(kernelMemoryLimit=500000), and output the results with python command. It does not work, too.
I only want to extract a very simple free body cut data from a 5Gb odb file. How to solve this problem?
How have people set up loading/boundary conditions for a quenching heat treatment model simulation? Do you apply loads or boundary conditions? Do you use an interface condition such as surface film condition and apply a film coeff (your HTC value)? I havn't been able to find any papers that really explicitly lay out how the setup is done.
I am trying to model the damage evolution in a bolted connection in Abaqus with element deletion option. I have the stress-strain data for the bolt but not sure how to extract the required inputs necessary to model the damage or the fracture in the bolt. Below is a short explination for how I did the modeling:
Material - mechanical - damage for ductile metals - shear damage.
Then, a window opened asking to enter the material parameter (ks), fracture strain, shear stress ratio, and strain rate. (see attached photo).
After that in order to model the damage evolution, I selected sup-option and it asked me for the displacement at failure. (see the attached photo).
I do not know how or from where I can get these values. I tried to read about the damage mechanics but could not get how obtain these values. Are there any resources that can help or any examples or explanations?
I want to perform a nonlinear dynamic analysis (DYNAMIC IMPLICIT step) of a RC column under earthquake excitation in Abaqus (Standard or CAE).
While there is no problem with my simulation using MATERIAL DAMPING options with default materials (like Concrete Damaged Plasticity), I can not apply Rayleigh damping when I use an User Material for Concrete (see screenshot). The following error occurs:
***ERROR: A MATERIAL PROPERTY THAT IS NOT ALLOWED WITH A USER MATERIAL HAS BEEN SPECIFIED
So apparently it is simply not possible to use it with a UMAT.
Are you aware of other possibilities to use Rayleigh damping (stiffness & mass proportional damping) with a UMAT?
I have read about GLOBAL DAMPING, but this is not applicable for direct solution procedures like DYNAMIC IMPLICIT.
I'm trying to use the Conventional Shell for the I-profile to validate a model in a paper. However, there is no value (i.e, number of plies, thickness, orientation) been provided. So, is there another method to get these inputs?
I want to connect two parts in abaqus. One is a cylindrical shell and the other is a solid deformable ring. The ring will act as a stiffener for the cylindrical shell. My question is what is the appropriate way to connect them?
1) Should I connect the parts in Assembly modulus and then merge them together?
2) Should I design both in Part modulus?
3)Or should I tie them with a solid-to-shell constraint?
What is the best strategy? How the results will be affected by choosing one of these 3 methods?
I try to compare a neo-hookean material implemented in Abaqus with one made by a user subroutine (UMAT) in fortran.
The user subroutine came from the same author as the article
Isotropic hyperelasticity in principal stretches: explicit elasticity tensors and numerical implementation
My material is neo-hookean, incompressible, with material property C1 = 0.005
The problem is that when I try to pull my beam, with abaqus neo-hookean simulation, my beam becomes thinner (what is expected), but when I try to do it with my UMAT, the beam becomes thicker (not expected)
You can see my results in the image "Comparison umat and abaqus.JPG"
Do you know why I have this incoherence ?
- I am trying to simulate a pure shear loading on a cubical block with a single brick element.

I'm trying to simulate an orthogonal cutting operation on Abaqus, I'm using Dynamic explicit analysis. I have defined my tool as Rigid analytical body and the workpiece is of Ti6Al4V, I have not assigned any material to the tool.
My problem is that the simulation runs untill 50 increments and completes, but the cutting operation dosen't take place, I have attached images for reference. I have used 0.025 as time period and 0.0005 as time increment. Any variation of time increment results in an error.
Please help me run the simulation succesfully.
I am writing Abaqus USDFLD to change my Young's Modulus after strain crosses the value of 0.035 and start deleting elements when strain value crosses 0.05 in a heterogeneous model (composed of two different sections).
I am using linear degradation; (1-D)*E where D goes from 0 to 1 as strain goes from 0.035 to 0.05.
See the image below, and I want that degradation to follow the linear curve.
So, my problem is how do I infer the young's modulus (E) and which section I am at when I use the GETVRM subroutine to get values at the integration point? I have checked the Abaqus documentation but couldn't find the method to get E at the integration points. Is there any alternative way to accomplish this?
And I am assuming we need to supply the same subroutine file (.for) for all the material, which gives rise to this issue, and I am unsure how to supply different subroutine files for all the different sections we have. Is this possible?
I have modelled a high-speed train running on a soil medium. The waves hitting the boundary and reflecting back. I used infinite elements but they somehow cause a residual displacement and viscous elements elements seem to reflect some waves back. Do you have any other recommendations how to implement absorbing/non-reflecting boundary?
I am simulating rock cutting process in Abaqus. The simulation starts with a brick shaped rock (flat top surface) and one of the responses I am interested in is the removed volume of rock at the end of the cutting process. I should note that there is a damage model defined and the elements get deleted accordingly.
Using output variable STATUS does not work unfortunately, since some elements simply fly away without being deleted (when I checked the STATUS value for those flying elements, I can see they are set to 1). In other words, some rock particles simply get removed without being deleted.
I tried using a displacement criteria, essentially checking displacement of nodes and if they are above a threshold, I consider them as "removed". However, I was wondering if there would be a more elegant and robust way to do this. Is there for example another output variable in Abaqus, which would tell me element IDs for those elements which lost connectivity to the rest of the model.
Thank you very much in advance for your comments and replies.

I am rather new to Abaqus/Isight. So, what I did was to create a model in Abaqus (using the GUI), and then try to optimize the geometry of one of my parts in Isight using the .cae file as input.
However, Isight doesnt run Abaqus unless I use the .inp file as input. Thus, I was wondering if there is a way to access the dimensions of my pieces and name them using the .inp file generated by abaqus.
Help is greatly appreciated !! :)
Dear all Abaqus users,
I want to connect a cylindrical shell with a solid ring, where the ring simulates the flange. For this purpose I was thinking to the shell-to-solid constraint. However, some qiestions arise and I would like to ask for your help.
I am a little bit confused on how to connect solid and shell and how shell's offset affect the connection.
In figure 1 ,below there is a sketch of the model.
For the connection should I use the green area which it's width(0.016 m) is the same as the cylinrical shell's thickness or should I use the whole flange's surface?
Any help will be appreciated.
I asked this a while ago, but decided to dig a little deeper before asking again. When using the Abaqus JH1/JH2/JHB Johnson-Holquist models for brittle materials, the FS (Failure strain) element removal threshold value is extremely important to ensure the simulation matches experiments, yet in practically all of the studies I have looked into, none of them have reported this FS value despite its major significance.
In the Abaqus documentation, FS was given as 0.2 for SiC. Subsequent studies on alumina have claimed that this FS value needed to be adjusted for accuracy, but then never reported it (e.g. Liu et al. 2015; Khan et al., 2021; Guo et al. 2020; Goda & Girardot 2021).
If anyone can shed some light about what this FS value is meant to be and how to obtain it experimentally or analytically, I would love to understand it better. Thank you!
For the case of crack propagation abaqus provides both the above methods. What is the difference between the two?
The usual answers seen are just mentioning that one uses CZM and another LEFM.
If anyone could give more details into them it would be really helpful. Since it is not yet
available in literature if both offer the same accuracy or not.
Hi every one
I am working on a model with stretching and bending in Abaqus. In my first step I apply the stretching to my model and in the second step I apply the bending. The magnitude of kinetic energy is small in 1st step but it increases significantly in bending step and exceeds the internal energy. Is there anyway to reduce the magnitude of kinetic energy? Also I should say that I have not used the mass scaling!
I am trying to do an UMAT subroutine, but when i evaluated it in Abaqus Command many errors were appeared.
Would anyone know how to solve them?
I attache an image of the errors
Thanks in advance
I am trying to carry out a study in which in the first step the cylindrical part only moves in the Y axis (for which I apply a BC limiting U1, U3, UR1, UR2 and UR3 = 0 and a pressure on the upper face of that part which cause its movement), however when in the next step I want the part to stay in the position in which it ended in the previous step (that is, it does not return to its initial position) I cannot do it.
I have tried to limit the 6 degrees of freedom in that 2nd step with a BC, but that causes that even in the 1st step there is no movement.
Would someone know how to do it?
I attach images and a video for a better understanding
Thanks in advance
