If you are a graduate or Ph.D. student, if you are a university professor or an expert engineer in the industry who deals with simulation software, you are definitely familiar with the limitations of this software in defining the material properties, loading or meshing, interaction properties, and etc. You have certainly tried to define the properties of materials based on advanced fracture theories in finite element software and are familiar with their limitations and problems.
Now, here is your solution. Start writing subroutines in finite element software and overcome the limitations. With the tutorials in the Golden Package, you will learn how to write 8 subroutines in Abaqus software professionally.
Advanced Package 1- UMAT Subroutine (VUMAT Subroutine) introduction: 4 workshops in 160 min English Video
This package is used when the material model is not available in ABAQUS software. If you follow this tutorial package, including standard and explicit solver, you will have the ability to write, debug and verify your subroutine based on customized material to use this in complex structures. These lectures are an introduction to write advanced UMAT and VUMAT subroutines in hyperelastic Martials, Composites, and Metal, and so on.
Advanced Package 2- Advanced UMAT Subroutine (VUMAT Subroutine): 6 workshops in 140 min English Video
This training package helps Abaqus users to prepare complex UMAT and VUMAT subroutines. This training package is suitable for those who are familiar with subroutine or want to learn UMAT/VUMAT subroutine Professionally. Equations for computational plasticity based on kinematic stiffness are also discussed. In addition, metal damage has been implemented based on Johnson Cook’s model.
This tutorial teaches you how to define the strain energy of hyperelastic isotropic materials which are dependent on field variable or state variable. This Training package including mandatory and optional parameters and the results of Subroutine for verification is compared with the ABAQUS results.
Advanced Package 4- Introduction to VFRICTION and VFRIC Subroutines in ABAQUS: 4 Workshops in 120 min English Video
This tutorial helps you in cases where the classical Columbian equations are more complex and cannot be implemented by the graphical ABAQUS environment. This package introduces and teaches how to write these two subroutines. This introduction contains explaining different optional and mandatory parameters of VFRICTION and VFRIC subroutines.
Advanced Package 5- DLOAD Subroutine and VDLOAD Subroutine in ABAQUS: 5 Workshops in 120 min English Video
This training package helps Abaqus users to prepare complex DLoad and VDLoad subroutines. With the help of these workshops, you can get acquainted with the basic and comprehensive way of DLoad and VLoad subroutine writing and their applications. By viewing this package as an engineer, you can do basic projects with complex loads.
Advanced Package 6- Introduction to USDFLD and VUSDFLD Subroutine: 4 Workshops in 120 min English Video
In this usable tutorial, the material properties can change to an arbitrary dependent variable. One of the most important advantages of this subroutine is simplicity and applicability. Various and high usage examples are unique characteristics of the training package.
This tutorial package is used for writing the most sophisticated subroutines in ABAQUS, UEL, which is applicable in customized problems. Stiffness matrix and nodal forces are the output of the subroutine which can be defined based on several variables. This training is going to solve many user’s challenges to write this complex UEL subroutine.
The “UMESHMOTION subroutine in ABAQUS” package teaches you how to write this subroutine using a variety of examples. An example of the use of UMESHMOTION subroutine is in the wear process using the Archard model in Abaqus which is very popular in academic and industrial projects.
This package presents a technique to bridge the gap between ABAQUS and MATLAB. It is especially useful when you want to set up an automated optimization loop between these two PC applications. The key points for linking are presented in a case study that is about topology optimization of an end-fixed 2D plate by the BESO approach.
