This course is for researchers, students and engineers who would like to understand, develop and implement new material constitutive models in ABAQUS software through UMAT subroutine. It is expected that you know how to create FE models in ABAQUS CAE and are also aware of continuum mechanics theory.
You will learn about the following:
· What is a UMAT subroutine?
· How to get started with using or writing a UMAT subroutine?
· UMAT structure and variables
· A simple linear elastic material model example
Finally a simple linear elastic model will be used in three dimensions to implement in UMAT subroutine.
As part of this course, a couple of complimentary FEA quizzes are included to give you an opportunity to know about the level of FEA knowledge you may have. This will also help you select appropriate courses which may improve and enhance your FEA knowledge by taking new courses developed by 3MEC.
I hope you will enjoy this short course and learn about it. You may suggest what you would like to see in the advanced level course of UMAT and I will definitely include them in the upcoming courses.
Thanks again for looking into this course and hope to serve you better in future.
