# Thread: ABAQUS VUMAT for the Neo-Hookean model

1. ## ABAQUS VUMAT for the Neo-Hookean model

A single-precision Abaqus VUMAT subroutine for the Neo-Hookean (NH) model. The subroutine is an example of how to write a VUMAT. The subroutine only works for plane-strain, axisymmetric, and 3D-elements.

2. ## Vumat

Hello Doctor;
I view the VUMAT, but when I have run Abaqus, it did not market, is that you can send me the file (.INP), for your example.
Thank you

3. You can get exemplar input files here.

4. ## VUMAT condition

Hello Dr;
You below the condition that I applied to initialize the FE that correcpond in my simulation gradien elastic.
Abaqus compile when I got started in the calculation and stops immediately, and when I calculate this condition normally, but on this condition is necessary to get good results.
So is what you think is the right way to proceed?

IF (totTime.EQ.0.0) THEN
C setup FE (upper diagonal part)
FE(1,1) = 1.02
FE(2,2) = 1.039
FE(3,3) = 1.059
FE(1,2) = 1.079
if (nshr .eq. 1) then
FE(2,3) = 0.0
FE(3,1) = 0.0
FE(2,1) = 0.0
FE(3,2) = 0.0
FE(1,3) = 0.0
else
FE(2,3) = 1.0099
FE(3,1) = 1.029
FE(2,1) = 1.0049
FE(3,2) = 1.079
FE(1,3) = 1.809
end if
END IF

5. At time=0, should not FE = unit matrix ?
Why do you have non-zero values for FE?

6. Hello Dr;
Does it can introduce the Norton parameter (K and n) without Abaqus has gone through a routine for even the effect rate?
Strain-rate = (sig/K)**n
Thank you

7. The flow equation that you mention actually work rather well for many different types of polymers. Abaqus has two a model called "Two layer viscoplasticity" that I believe supports that flow rule. I have not had much luck with that model, however.

Another approach is to use the *Hysteresis model in Abaqus. That model is also based on that flow rule.

A third option is to write your own user-material.

8. ## Abaqus

Dear Doctor
Can you tell me what the « Lemaître » model exists in Abaqus?
I introduced the viscosity parameters of in Abaqus, but I did not understand what "m and f?
Thank you

9. I don't recall a Lemaitre model in Abaqus. If there is such a model, can you provide a reference?

-Jorgen

10. ## damage parameter "D".

Dear Dr ;
What I realize in order to Abaqus
To calculated of the damage parameter "D".
Is that there is a possibility to calculate this parameter "D", for me it’s the lemaitre model
In attached you find a page on the model.
Thank you
