The objective of this seminar is to provide an introductory overview of the utility and functionality of user subroutines for both Abaqus/Standard and Abaqus/Explicit. In this class you will be presented with the overall structure of the user subroutine feature including the functional relationship to the analysis codes, subroutine construction, communication issues, code validation and operational procedures. Numerous examples will be presented to enhance the discussion.
Topics that will be covered include:
Overview of user subroutines
User subroutine structure
Defining loads, fields, and boundary conditions with user subroutines
User defined material modeling
Customizing contact behavior with user subroutines
