Can anyone please give me a method how to apply loading and unoading in Abaqus. I would like to apply an elastic model. I have for example 2D plate element, I want to apply a displaceemnt until it reaches for example 1 mm, after that unloading should be applied until the initial displacement zero value. After the unloading phase, I want to make the element in rest period in which no loading is applied, when it reaches a certain period of time, I want to apply loading again.
I would be thankful if someone can explain how to do it in abaqus.
