Abaqus Kelvin Voigt Viscoelastic Simulation Using UMAT and VUMAT Subroutines

270.0
A viscoelastic material exhibits characteristics of both solids and fluids when subjected to stress. This distinct behavior makes them useful in various applications. To use viscoelastic materials in various applications, we need to predict their behavior under different loading conditions. This tutorial discusses in detail how numerical methods address this matter (Abaqus kelvin voigt viscoelastic). The Kelvin-Voigt model describes viscoelastic behavior using a spring and a damper in parallel (kelvin voigt model abaqus). It effectively predicts creep, simulates material responses to impacts, and determines viscoelastic properties of materials like foams, rubbers, and biological tissues. Despite its strengths, it has limitations in describing stress relaxation. This tutorial focuses on implementing the Kelvin-Voigt model in Abaqus CAE using UMAT and VUMAT subroutines. While these subroutines are powerful, they require Fortran knowledge, posing a challenge. To assist, the tutorial provides a step-by-step guide on reviewing the model's formulation and writing the subroutines for both standard and explicit solvers. The tutorial demonstrates capturing damage in a problem, but the results are general, such as stress and displacement. You can customize the subroutine for your models and extract specific results without significant difficulty.

Friction Stir Welding simulation Tutorial | FSW Advanced level

100.0
(1)
Friction stir welding (FSW) involves complex material flow and plastic deformation. Welding parameters, tool geometry, etc., have important effects on the material flow pattern, heat distribution, and eventually on the structural evolution of the material. In an Abaqus friction stir welding example, the rotational movement of the tool and its friction in contact with the workpiece causes heat generation, loss of strength, and an increase in material ductility around the tool. The feeding movement of the tool causes the material to transfer from the front of the tool to the back of it, and eventually leads to a join. Therefore, heat plays an important role in this process, and parameters such as rotational speed, tool feeding speed, tool geometry, and others, all somehow have a significant impact on controlling the amount of incoming heat, the disturbance and flow pattern of the material, the evolution of the microstructure, and the quality of the resulted weld. This friction stir welding example simulation tutorial shows you how to simulate the Abaqus FSW simulation process in such a way that you can accurately predict the effect of all relevant parameters on the process. In most of the implemented projects, welding mud, and welding defects (welding overfills and overlaps, weld gaps) are not visible and predictable; however, in this simulation, these cases are visible. This project is designed to enhance participants' understanding of how to accurately simulate the FSW process to see the weld's general appearance.

Cold spray & Shot peening simulation in Abaqus

109.0
(1)
Cold spray is a process used to deposit materials onto a substrate by accelerating fine powder particles to high velocities using compressed gas. Upon impact with the substrate, the particles undergo rapid plastic deformation, disrupting surface oxide films and promoting bonding between metal surfaces. Unlike thermal spray processes, cold spray avoids thermal degradation and partial oxidation of the coating material, resulting in coatings with low porosity and oxygen content. The process is highly efficient, with deposition efficiencies often exceeding 90%. Shot peening is a metal treatment process that involves bombarding a surface with small, round metallic (usually steel), ceramic, or glass beads at high velocity. This process creates small indentations on the surface, which in turn introduces compressive residual stress into the material. These two processes are different and use for separate purposes but their simulations are the same. Cold spray is particularly important in applications where thermal degradation or oxidation of the coating material is a concern or where the coating is required to be thick and free from defects. In this package, you will learn how to simulate this process with different methods, such as ALE and SPH, with different materials. For example, Cold spray simulation of steel particles impacts on the Inconel target using ALE method.
