Using CSLIPEQ in Abaqus/Standard

By | August 8th, 2019|Abaqus FEA, Mechanical Engineering, Simulia, Tips&Tricks|

Often enough when working with contact problems we want to consider the full surface slip between our surfaces - not the directional components CSLIP1 and CSLIP2. CSLIPEQ represents the total slip length at a slave or edge node while in contact. Incremental contributions to CSLIP1 and CSLIP2 are computed as the scalar product of the incremental relative nodal displacement vector [...]

Lingering Explicit jobs on Windows 7

By | May 6th, 2019|Abaqus FEA, Simulia, Tips&Tricks|

During the last couple of weeks I've noticed that a few of my explicit jobs does not terminate properly on Windows 7. This forces me to manually terminate the processes (which does not take up any extra tokens luckily) but they do consume precious memory. The cause is a bug in the Windows MPI library [...]
