Simulation of composite wood damage FEM in Abaqus
Wood is one of the materials which are used in different industries like construction, furniture, marine structures, etc. These structures are subjected to different types of loads during their service life. This leads to different types of damage in the wood composite materials. In this training package, we focus on wood damage FEM based on Sandhas and Hashin failure criteria.
In this wood damage FEM package, firstly, we introduce the failure criteria and their equations. Then, we describe the flowchart of the damage models. In the next step, we try to explain two subroutines line by line. finally, we learn you how to use these two subroutines in two different workshops and discuss the results.
The Abaqus user subroutine allows the program to be customized for particular applications unavailable through the main Abaqus facilities. You should write a user subroutine if you cannot run your analysis by ABAQUS built-in models for materials, loads, properties, elements, etc. for example, if you need to model a user-defined nonlinear stress-strain relation, which is not provided by Abaqus, then look for UMAT user subroutine. A simpler subroutine is USDFLD, which allows the creation of user-defined parameters. If it is your first time writing a subroutine like UMAT, VUMAT or USDFLD please read the Start Writing an Abaqus Subroutine: Basics & Recommendations article. After reading this post and watching this tutorial’s demo video, you will definitely decide to save time in Abaqus modelling and get this training package. If you have questions, ask here on our live chat on the left.
If you are working on Abaqus composite damage and need some resources about composite FEM simulation, click on the Abaqus composite analysis page to get more than 20 hours of video training packages on composite materials simulation. I hope you have got enough information about the wood damage FEM simulation; if you need more information about this package, please get in touch with us via online chat on the left side of this page. It would be helpful to see Abaqus Documentation to understand how it would be hard to start an Abaqus simulation without any Abaqus tutorial.
The video files will be available 2 months later after purchase.
After purchase, you can access the software files and subroutines immediately.
