Fortran and Visual Studio for Abaqus:
As you may know, Abaqus user subroutines are written in Fortran language using Intel Fortran. Intel Fortran compiler needs to work under Microsoft Visual Studio. For many users, this is a challenge to find versions of Intel Fortran and Visual Studio compatible with their Abaqus version. If the version of your Fortran compiler does not correspond to that specified, incompatibilities may occur.
For a quick reference, you can see this Q&A:
After many years of working with different versions of Abaqus, here we provide you with a list of compatible versions. We have tested these combinations and can assure you to work. Although, maybe you could find other compatibility sets.
In addition, we have a table for compatible versions of Intel Fortran and Visual Studio as follow if you want to try other versions:
(Intel provided the data:
If you got enough information about compatible Fortran and Visual studio of Abaqus but you do not know how to start writing a subroutine, you can find more information on the Abaqus subroutine blog post. If you want to get more information about some necessary steps to write a subroutine in FORTRAN, you can read Fortran ‘Must Knows’ for Writing Subroutines in Abaqus (PART I).
Finally, we hope you find a compatible Fortran and Visual studio for your Abaqus, but if you were in trouble and didn’t set compatible versions, you can fill out our consultancy form in Consulting Mechanical Engineering Service to find the best consultation service in Abaqus software.
It would be useful to see Abaqus Documentation to understand how it would be hard to start an Abaqus simulation without any Abaqus tutorial. Good news for you! If you are a student and working on academic research, you have a special discount on all products. Get a discount from online support.
