Greetings, I need some help in identifying and solving a problem with restart files. For a better understanding, the .inp files used are described below: abaqus_rotation.inp = original file in which the necessary restart information is written. abaqus_load.inp = original file that restarts from abaqus_rotation.inp. abaqus_rotationtemp.inp = abaqus_rotation.inp edited with Abaqus2Matlab. abaqus_loadtemp.inp = abaqus_load.inp edited with Abaqus2Matlab. The editing is performed using tempAbaqusInpFile(inp_name) , without any changes on the code. The simulation runs perfectly using the following statement and the original files: abaqus_simulation = system(['abaqus job=abaqus_load.inp oldjob=abaqus_rotation cpus=4 interactive']) However, the simulation does not run and the following message appears when I replace the job and/or the oldjob with the edited files. If possible, could you help in solving this problem? I don't know why, but I can't upload the files here... If necessary, I can send them by e-mail.
Hello, I was wondering if you could help me. I have recently changed across to a new version of ABAQUS (2018) and when I try to use the Abaqus2Matlab toolbox using my input file (that worked previously worked) I have come across an error. The .fil file outputs without modal results (i.e those prefaced with 'I 41980') which will be written to the output file using Rec1980. During line 66-70 of Rec1980 out= and no results are obtained. I am confused by this as ABAQUS completes as required and modal results are written into the correct .dat file. Could you please advise? Thanks you in advance for your help and thank you for producing such a wonderful and user friendly toolbox. Kind Regards Heather
I am using Abaqus2Matlab in my research and wondering if there is a way to report nodal outputs for select groups of nodes. I am performing a Abaqus Standard study on a flexible part. I would like to extract the displacements at all nodes, as well as the reaction force at a single, specific node (a reference point which is kinematically constrained to a region of the model). I create my reference point and define an assembly nodal set RP_set which contains it. I understand that if I put the following in the .inp file, I will write out the displacements and reaction forces for all nodes: *FILE FORMAT, ASCII *NODE FILE U, RF Is it possible to write out the displacements for all nodes, but the reaction forces for the reference point in RP_set only? Something like the following: *FILE FORMAT, ASCII *NODE FILE U *NODE FILE, NSET = RP_set RF Thanks! Appreciate all the work you have put into this package and the community on this website.
