This is dynamic simulation. I assume the impact stress around 10Mpa is
the peak value. I am wondering if the reaction force around the order 0.5N
is also peak value.

I don't think it is due to NLgeom ON

Ayagara Aravind Rajan Universit d'Orlans


yes both the values are Peak values.

To be sure, I had run simulations without sample and NLgeom OFF where
I nd the results somewhat coherent.

I do know that NLgeom is used to trace the non-lienar effects i.e. if the
stress levels are in linear domin, we see no non-linear effects.

It is Hyper-elastic. Here is one thing: how do you dene the material
properties. If you dene it as hyperelastic, NLgeom has to be ON
denitely.

There are three nonlinear sources in structural mechanics simulation:
material nonlinearity, boundary nonlinearity, geometric nonlinearity. The
same ABAQUS analysis also contains these three nonlinearities. In
ABAQUS software, nonlinear simulation is the most common, because all
physical structures are non-linear, and linear analysis is only a convenient
approximation, in a certain range , The design can generally achieve the
required accuracy, but for many of the actual structure of the simulation
can not meet the requirements, for example, forging, stamping and other
processing simulation analysis is the case.
Geometric nonlinearity
Geometric non-linearity occurs at the magnitude of the displacement that
affects the structure of the response. Generally caused by the following
three situations: large deection or large rotation; sudden ip; initial stress
or load rigidity.
In the ABAQUS analysis, the denition of geometric nonlinear problem is
relatively simple, only in the * STEP option to join NLGEOM parameters
can be removed and PERTURBATION parameters. You can also add INC
parameters to specify the maximum number of incremental steps allowed
in the analysis.
And in the CAE denition is also very simple, only need to dene STEP, the
NLGEOM parameter can be set to ON.
2 material nonlinearity
Many metals exhibit near-linear elastic properties at small strains. At this
point the elastic modulus of the material is constant, and in the case of
high stress or strain, the metal begins to exhibit non-linear properties,
which we call plasticity.
In ABAQUS it is necessary to dene plasticity with true stress and true
strain. ABAQUS Enter these values in the input le that you want. However,
most experimental data are often given by nominal stress and nominal
strain. The formula should then use the formula to convert the plastic
material's data from nominal stress / strain to true stress / strain.
3 boundary nonlinearity
If the boundary conditions change with the analysis process, the boundary
nonlinear problem arises. For example, the two parts of the bolted
connection will come into contact with the applied bolt preload, that is, the
boundary nonlinearity. The contact is actually a series of special
discontinuous constraints. When tightening the bolts, the surface of the
two parts is separated by a gap of zero and the application of the contact

constraint is applied. When the contact condition is "open" to "closed", the
contact pressure is severe Change, make contact simulation very difcult.
The rst step is to dene the surface with the * SURFACE DEFINI TION

interaction between surfaces, and then use the * CONTACT PAIR option to
dene the surface that you may be exposed to. Correct.
