As a simple example, I would like to implement a Kalman-Filter in a level 2 m-file s-function. Because of this, I need a covariance matrix P, which will be updated at every time step (so, the matrix of the last timestep is also needed). It would be self-evident to use a DWork variable for this. But the DWork variable cannot be defined as a matrix. Do you have any ideas how a matrix can be implemented in a s-function as a DWork-like structure?
Be careful when using Dwork vector for saving 2D-array after reshaping it into vector. Because if you choose the Dwork vector length to be equal to the total number of elements in the 2D-array. Next, you reshape the 2D-array into vector. After that, you save the "vectorized" 2D-array into the Dwork vector. Then for unknown reason, the Dwork vector will save only half of the 2D-array elements. This will be the case no matter what you try! But fortunately, after long effort of trial and error, I found solution for this problem. Simply by choosing the length of the Dwork vector to be double...more

Here, I am trying macro modeling of infilled frame in DIANA, to check whether my interface element (CSC model) between infill and frame is working or not. But stress distribution looks uniform for whole panel as shown in attached document. Can anyone please help me to find problem and solution for this.
It is not a problem actually, if you used a zero thickness interface elements between frame and infill wall. If those elements are in compression, obviously there is wall to frame penetration, because thickness is zero but stiffness is not infinite.

I am attempting to simulate a triaxial test in ABAQUS/Standard using the clay plasticity model in the ABAQUS material database. I am using a 3-D cylindrical specimen which contains a single element (3D stress - C3D10). For my initial BCs, I applied a zero-displacement BC in the vertical direction on the bottom of the specimen. My first step is a geostatic step, in which I apply the confining pressure. In my second step, I apply a pressure at the top of the specimen. The geostatic step converges in a single increment, which tells me my initial stress is correct. For my second step, I... more

and also do negative or complex eigenvalues have meaning in a buckling analysis?
As far as I see, it has no direct way to avoid the unsymmetry via integration by parts (only switches the derivative from the solution function to the test function). It remember me the cases with weak formulation of non-self-adjoint systems e.g. advection-diffusion problems (e.g. -u'' + ku' = 0). But, I am not an expert on that, however if you need some direction try to ask to experts in Discontinuous Galerkin as well as who uses UMFPACK. After, if possible give us here some feedback.

According to the User subroutine Abaqus manual, "If thermal expansion is included in the same material definition, the strains passed into UMAT are the mechanical strains only (that is, the thermal strains computed based upon the thermal expansion coefficient have been subtracted from the total strains)." -quoted as in manual. So what happens if I don't include Thermal co-efficient in the material definition. What will Abaqus provide me in the STRAN and DSTRAN variable if there is a temperature change included in the analysis?
I think you are right. Without any mechanical loading I am getting DSTRAN value. I have just assigned initial temperature and thermal expansion coefficient. Then cooled it to room temperature.

Are you looking for making a loop so that you "automate" calculating the flood load per each velocity..etc? If that's what you want, either create loops ( like *do loop) inside the APDL or create a macro, indeed, inside the apdl ( like the segment you want to repeat, start with "macro" ...put your code, then "end macro". OR you can save the macro code into a separate file and call for it. On either situation there is no escaping from making *do, loops inside the apdl.

The mechanical response of concrete is complex and as other composite materials, multiscale modelling has the potential for modeling its macroscopic behavior. This paper presents an upscaling methodology for the modelling of the concrete mechanical properties. The suggested formulation starts from a known chemical and mechanical set of parameters of the cement paste, which are used to evaluate the mechanical properties of the LDPM (Lattice Discrete Particle Model) concrete mechanical parameters. The parameters are divided to groups, which are related to different damage modes such as: pore...

This paper derives the causal time-response functions of three-parameter mechanical networks that have been reported in the literature and involve the inerter—a two-node element in which the force-output is proportional to the relative acceleration of its end-nodes. It is shown that all frequency-response functions that exhibit singularities along the real frequency axis need to be enhanced with the addition of a Dirac delta function or with its derivative depending on the strength of the singularity. In this way the real and imaginary parts of the enhanced frequency response functions are...

The design of aircraft has evolved over time from the classical design approach to the more modern computer-based design method utilizing multivariate design optimization. In recent years, aircraft concepts and configurations have become more diverse and complex thus pushing many synthesis packages beyond their capability. Furthermore, many examples of aircraft design software focus on the analysis of one particular concept thus requiring separate packages for each concept. This can lead to complications in comparing concepts and configurations as differences in performance may originate...

Recently several non-standard phase-field models have been proposed for the modeling of damage and fracture in solids, greatly extending scopes of the standard one applicable only for brittle fracture (Bourdin et al., 2000, 2008). However, it is a great challenge to solve the resulting discrete governing equations, since the classical numerical algorithm for standard phase-field models either does not apply or is not robust enough. In this work, the numerical implementation of the unified phase-field/gradient-damage model (Wu, 2017a, 2018) is addressed, though it also applies to the...

The tectonic depression, which occurred in the Dinarides during the Miocene, caused the formation of the freshwater lakes and travertine limestone. It is interesting in terms of research and exploitation of architectural and building stone, as they have been exploitedand used since ancient times on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H).Thetradition of building with fresh water (lake) limestone in B&H is long, especially constructionwith "tenelija" and "miljevina (mudstone)", which are easily processed (especially in the presents of natural moisture), but they are not polished and...

Analytical investigations were carried out on high-strength concrete beam–column joints reinforced with high-strength steel rebars. The bond performance of test specimens was evaluated and compared with building code provisions. An analytical approach was obtained to study the influence of various patterns of column axial loading on the failure mechanism of beam–column joint subassemblies. In addition, a finite-element study was conducted to investigate the seismic behavior of reinforced concrete beam–column joints designed with high-strength materials. A novel recommendation for the joint...

The methods and generalized recommendations for modeling dynamic loading of load-bearing elements of steel structures of three-tier hydraulic cranes-manipulators are considered. Mathematical models have been developed to study the dynamics of moving elements of the crane-manipulator, the movement of the load-lifting machine on a stochastic uneven surface with a suspended load. The presented approaches can be used to calculate other types of jib cranes equipped with hydraulic drive. Chapter 1. Modern approaches to the design of cranes. Construction of cranes-manipulators.

Protein structure prediction (PSP) is computationally a very challenging problem. The challenge largely comes from the fact that the energy function that needs to be minimised in order to obtain the native structure of a given protein is not clearly known. A high resolution 20 × 20 energy model could better capture the behaviour of the actual energy function than a low resolution energy model such as hydrophobic polar. However, the fine grained details of the high resolution interaction energy matrix are often not very informative for guiding the search. In contrast, a low resolution...
