incompressible material in VUMAT

Hi every body,

I am writing a subroutine code in VUMAT for 3D elements. The material is incompressible, anisotopic hyperelastic. Is it possible to write VUMAT for it?

In addition, the material is reinforced. So I should introduce cylindrical local coordinate system in the model. Is it possible to use local coordinate for the model?

I dont think Abaqus/Explicit can accommodate fully incompressible elements. I dont understand your second question about the coordinate system.

Apparently Abaqus/Explicit allows a fully incompressibile option with 3D tetrahedrons.
