I am running an explicit simulation with vuanisohyper subroutine. I've included a simple failure criterion using element deletion which seems to work well.
My problem is that I can't seem to get abaqus to change the element status from 1 to 0 for deleted elements. stateNew(k,1) is the calculated stress, stateNew(k,2) is my damage flag which equals zero when the failure criterion is reached. In the material definition in the .inp i have
2, damage, "damage flag"
and in the subroutine I have
c Failure criterion
Can anybody spot my mistake?
