Dynamic Response of Ballasted Rail Track Under a Moving Load


Railway tracks are subjected to moving loads of trains and this causes vibration and degradation of the track. The judgment of these vibrations is important to design the railway tracks. The design involves the permissible speed of trains and the maximum axle load of the train. The model given here creates a 3D geometry of a railway track and applies a moving load in the form of a wheel. A user can change the speeds and the properties of the material including geometry as per their needs.

Continuously Reinforced Concrete Pavement (CRCP) Cracking Analysis


The increasing adoption of continuously reinforced concrete pavement (CRCP) in highway pavement design is driven by its demonstrated superior performance. Critical to evaluating the long-term effectiveness of CRCP is the understanding of early-age cracks (CRCP crack analysis), which has garnered significant interest from highway departments. This Abaqus Continuously reinforced concrete pavement modeling project aims to establish precise design parameters for CRCP and analyze the formation of crack patterns. By accounting for stress factors such as environmental conditions and CRCP shrinkage modeling, the project offers valuable insights into predicting the likelihood of crack initiation and propagation within the concrete slab. These insights are instrumental in enhancing the durability and performance of CRCP structures, thus advancing the efficiency and effectiveness of highway infrastructure.

Creep Analysis in Abaqus

In engineering, creep phenomenon refers to the gradual deformation or strain that occurs in a material over time when it is subjected to a constant load or stress (usually lower than yield stress) at high temperatures. It is a time-dependent process that can lead to the permanent deformation and failure of the material if not properly accounted for in design considerations. Creep analysis is vital in engineering to understand material behavior under sustained loads and high temperatures. It enables predicting deformation and potential damage, ensuring safe and reliable structures. Industries like power generation and aerospace benefit from considering creep for long-term safety and durability of components. In this training package, you will learn about Creep phenomenon and its related matters; you will learn several methods to estimate the creep life of a system’s components, such as Larson-Miller; moreover, all Abaqus models for the creep simulation such as Time-Hardening law and Strain-Hardening law will be explained along with Creep subroutine; also, there would be practical examples to teach you how to do these simulations.

Bolt Modeling in Abaqus

Bolts and joints play a vital role in the stability and structural integrity of various engineering structures, including buildings, bridges, and machines. Bolts are used to fasten or connect different components together, providing a means of transferring loads and ensuring the continuity of load paths.

Fatigue damage simulation of short fibre composites with subroutine

Fatigue failure in materials occurs when repetitive or fluctuating stresses, below the ultimate strength and often below the yield limit, lead to sudden and unpredictable failure, making it a significant concern in engineering due to its potential for catastrophic consequences. The reinforced part of the fiber-reinforced composites can be categorized as continuous or discontinuous, with the latter referred to as short fiber-reinforced composites. In this training package, the fatigue of short (chopped) fiber composites is explained. Two fatigue damage models are presented for short fiber composites: Nouri fatigue damage model and Avanzini fatigue damage model. The Nouri’s model is applicable for composites with orthotropic behavior. But the Avanzini’s model has considered the fiber distribution in the matrix to be homogeneous and random. It has assumed the material behavior to be isotropic. Also, Nouri's model was developed for strain-controlled test, but Avanzini's model was developed for stress-controlled test. In this tutorial, we use the Avanzini’s model, which is base on this article: “Fatigue behavior and cyclic damage of peek short fiber reinforced composites”. This article has implemented the USDFLD subroutine, but we use the UMAT subroutine, which is more accurate than USDFLD since the material strength and properties reduction is smooth. A standard test specimen is used in this simulation to model such behavior. You will learn the details in the package.
