Answers to Workshop 1

Answers 1 Basic Input and Output
Question W1–1: Answer: What is the processor on your machine? It depends on the system you are using.

Question W1–2: Answer:

What is the operating system (OS) level? It depends on the system you are using.

Question W1–3: Answer:

What are the two example problems that fit this description? Problem 1.1.15, Damage and failure of a laminated composite plate Problem 1.2.5, Unstable static problem: reinforced plate under compressive loads

Question W1–4:

Answer:

In the space provided, write the input to define a node set called TOP_NODES that contains previously defined nodes 21, 22, 23, and node set TOP_LEFT. *NSET, NSET=TOP_NODES 21, 22, 23, TOP_LEFT

Question W1–5:

Answer:

In the space provided, write the input to define a velocity boundary condition on the node set named NALL. The velocity is 7.0 m/s in the 2-direction. Will this option appear in the model data or the history data portion of the input file? This option will appear in the history data section of the input file, because it is a nonzero boundary condition. *BOUNDARY, TYPE=VELOCITY NALL, 2, 2, 7.0

Question W1–8: Answer: What is the first option in the history data? The history data begins with the ∗STEP option. Question W1–11: Do you need to define a density to complete the material definition? Material density is necessary for what types of analysis? Answer: No. ELSET=ELBEAMS.. Question W1–10: What type of elements are used to model the lug? Answer: C3D20R elements.e. 1/1 Introduction to ABAQUS/Standard and ABAQUS/Explicit WA1.5 Question W1–7: Answer: What is the first option in the model data? What is the last option in the model data? The beginning of the model data is the ∗HEADING option. SECTION=RECT. The beam has a rectangular cross-section with a height of 0. are used to model the lug. Question W1–9: Answer: How many steps are there in this analysis? There is only one step in this analysis. In a static analysis inertia effects are not considered. MATERIAL=STEEL1 0.2. write the input to define the ∗BEAM SECTION option for beam elements in element set ELBEAMS referring to a material named STEEL1. i.5 m and a width of 0.2 .2 m. 20-node brick elements (three-dimensional hexahedral continuum elements) with reduced integration.ABAQUS Answers to Workshop 1 Question W1–6: Answer: (Optional) In the space provided. 0. The last option in the model data is the ∗MATERIAL option in the material option block that defines the material properties of the model. *BEAM SECTION. The density is necessary for analysis procedures that consider inertia effects.

5. 1/1 Introduction to ABAQUS/Standard and ABAQUS/Explicit WA1. is 2376. Question W1–16: Which elements are in element set HOLEIN? Answer: Elements 1 and 16. The total number of variables.3 . 1. To specify degrees of freedom 1 through 6.ABAQUS Answers to Workshop 1 Question W1–12: How else could you define a completely constrained boundary condition? Answer: “Type” boundary conditions labels (such as ENCASTRE) can be used to define fixed boundary conditions in the model data. or can you ignore them? Answer: If you followed the instructions correctly to this point.dat) file indicating that the rotational degrees of freedom—4. including degrees of freedom plus any Lagrange multiplier variables. An alternative approach is to specify the fixed degrees of freedom by number. there are warning messages in the data (. you can safely ignore these warning messages. and 6—are not active in this model and cannot be restrained. therefore. ABAQUS ignores boundary conditions on degrees of freedom that cannot be restrained.dat) file. you could use the following input in the model data or history data: *BOUNDARY LHEND. Question W1–14: What warning messages did you get? Do they require changes to the input file. Question W1–15: How many elements are there in the model? How many variables are there? Answer: The model has 112 elements. 6 Question W1–13: What version of ABAQUS are you using? Answer: The version number is available at the top of the printed output (.

reaction forces.5671 E-04 m.. Question W1–19: What is the net reaction force in the 2-direction at the nodes in node set LHEND? Is this equal to the applied load? Answer: The reaction forces in the node set LHEND sum to 30 kN.7629E+07 Pa. Since there is no external load in the horizontal direction. which is equal to the applied load. Question W1–21: What is the deflection of node 20001 in node set HOLEBOT? Do the results reflect the reduction in loading? Answer: The deflection of the nodes in node set HOLEBOT is now reduced to – 1. Question W1–20: Why is the sum of the reaction forces at the nodes in node set LHEND in the horizontal direction (1-direction) zero? Answer: At the section represented by node set LHEND the reaction forces in the horizontal direction simply couple to resist the moment induced by the applied vertical load. in this case by a factor of 2 since this is a linear analysis.4 .4766E+08 Pa.1342 E-04 m. the reaction forces add up to zero in the horizontal direction. σ11 and σ22)? Answer: The maximum direct stress in the 1-direction (S11) is 3.e. The deflections. the maximum direct stress in the 2-direction (S22) is 8.ABAQUS Answers to Workshop 1 Question W1–17: What are the maximum direct stresses in the 1. and stresses decrease in proportion to the reduction in loading.and 2-directions (i. Question W1–18: What is the deflection of node 20001 in node set HOLEBOT in the 2-direction? Answer: The deflection is – 3. 1/1 Introduction to ABAQUS/Standard and ABAQUS/Explicit WA1.
