How to plot UEL results?
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.
In more detail,
I have the dummy element:
*Element, type=M3D4, elset=ElDummy
10001, 1, 2, 4, 3
*Membrane Section, elset=ElDummy, material=Dummymat
I do call it
**Element Output, elset=ElDummy
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.
