Abaqus Subroutine Course Overview

Master complex engineering challenges in Abaqus with this comprehensive course on advanced subroutines. Extend the software’s capabilities and create highly customized simulations.

Dive deep into UMAT, VUMAT, USDFLD, VUSDFLD, UHARD, VUHARD, UMATHT and UHYPER to craft unique material models, define hardening behavior, model thermal effects, and internal heat generation with HETVAL.

Go beyond built-in options with DLOAD, VDLOAD and DFLUX, VDFLUX for intricate loading scenarios and heat flux variations. Achieve time-dependent loads and boundary conditions using UAMP, VUAMP, DISP, and VDISP.

Unlock advanced control with UMESHMOTION for mesh motion and UEL, VUEL for intricate element behavior. Simulate complex friction with VFRICTION, VFRIC, and manage user-defined outputs and thermal strains with UVARM, VUVARM, UEXPAN, and VUEXPAN.

This course is ideal for experienced Abaqus users seeking to push simulation boundaries and solve real-world engineering problems beyond traditional methods.

This course appears to be a comprehensive guide to Abaqus subroutines, which are a powerful tool for extending the capabilities of Abaqus software. The course covers a wide range of subroutines, including:

Material Subroutines:

  1. UMAT and VUMAT: These subroutines are used to define complex material models that are not available in Abaqus by default.
  2. USDFLD and VUSDFLD: These subroutines allow users to define material properties that change based on various conditions.
  3. UHYPER Subroutine: This subroutine is used to define the strain energy of hyperelastic isotropic materials.
  4. UHARD and VUHARD Subroutines: These subroutines are used to define user-defined hardening models in Abaqus.
  5. UMATHT Subroutine: This subroutine is used for defining a material’s thermal behavior.

Load Subroutines:

  1. VDLOAD and DLOAD: These subroutines are used to define complex loads.
  2. DFLUX Subroutine: This subroutine is used for thermal loading when the heat flux is dependent on other variables.
  3. UAMP and VUAMP Subroutines: These subroutines are used to define time-varying loads and boundary conditions.

Boundary Condition Subroutines:

  1. DISP and VDISP Subroutines: These subroutines are used to define complex boundary conditions.

Mesh Subroutines:

  1. UMESHMOTION Subroutine: This subroutine is used to define mesh motion for adaptive meshing.

Other Subroutines:

  1. UEL & VUEL Subroutine: This subroutine is used with the Abaqus Explicit solver for advanced users to define element behavior in Abaqus for complex materials and element types.
  2. VFRICTION and VFRIC Subroutines: These subroutines are used to simulate friction in complex situations.
  3. UVARM and VUVARM Subroutines: These subroutines are used to define user-defined output variables at material calculation points.
  4. UEXPAN and VUEXPAN Subroutines: These subroutines are used to define incremental thermal strains.
  5. HETVAL Subroutine: This subroutine can be used to define a heat flux due to internal heat generation in a material

The course appears to include workshops on how to use these subroutines to solve specific engineering problems. Overall, this course appears to be a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about how to use Abaqus subroutines to create custom material models, loads, boundary conditions, and more.
