Hello,

I am using Umat for a Shape memory alloy material while i am using beam elements to model sma wires.

But i think i nees some more integration points than the defaults which abaqus provides.

I read in the users manual for example for a beam element : (users manual vol4 316page of pdf file aabqus v6.9.1)

Nondefault integration input for a beam section integrated during the analysis

Beam in a plane: A maximum of 9 points are permitted.

Beam in space: Give an odd number of points in the radial direction, then an even number of points in

the circumferential direction.

Can anyone give me an advice how i will ask for these non default points in the input file?

thanks in advance for every reply
