I have written an 8-noded hexahedral (3 dimensional) user element for Abaqus.
I have tried to test it with a single element, uniaxial test.
I am not sure if the input file is using the user element I have written. I generating the input file from within Abaqus using the standard 3D 8noded element.
How exactly does one go about generating an input file that users the user element?
