RHS formulation in UEL
Mar 04, 2009 4:42 am
I have been writing a UEL for a while now. I have got it running in Abaqus, and as far as I can tell, the stiffness matrix is fine.
I run a single element test. The UEL is an 8-node 3D element.
The loading is a 2 unit displacement on one face. The opposite face is fully fixed. The element size is 2 by 2 by 2 units.
I am trying to write code for the RHS (force vector). I have tried various approaches, but the solution always diverges. Any advice on RHS writing?

No specific advice but to take small steps and carefully debug your code 😎
