Hello,

Could someone tell me how to graph the results of a UEL?

I know that I have to create dummy elements, and plot the SDV variable there, but I would like to know if someone can pass the code as an example. I can't get it to work.

Thanks

In more detail,

 

I have the dummy element:

 

*Element, type=M3D4, elset=ElDummy
10001, 1, 2, 4, 3
**
*Membrane Section, elset=ElDummy, material=Dummymat
0.1
** MATERIALS
**
*Material, name=Material-1
*Elastic
1., 0.49
*Material, Name=Dummymat
*Elastic
1e-016, 0.49
*Depvar
3

I do call it

**Element Output, elset=ElDummy
SDV

 

But, I do not have UMAT in the subroutine. I do have UVARM, but it does not seem to join it. I do not know how it gets converged as the Depvar should look for a UMAT.

I have not worked with with UEL routines in a long time 🙄 

I recommend that you first check that your UEL code works as expected using one element and  many print statements. Once you are convinced it works then I would consider the visualization of the results.
