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 [...]

Customized Graph Settings in Abaqus 2016/2017

By | January 30th, 2017|Abaqus FEA, Mechanical Engineering|

I will show you how to set the axis labels and legends to 24pt, and the axis labels (Energy / Time) to 18pt as new default options using “Save Display Options” and with Python. Both methods can be used to customize other settings such as background color (I prefer a solid white background), the averaging threshold etc. […]
