Is there a way to process the data obtain from ODB file, let say to calculate fatigue life prediction of each element from a dynamic simulation? Then, can i make a new ODB file which plot a contour of each element's fatigue life prediction?
Thanks a lot for your useful Tool!
However when I use it to extract the RMISES values, I have meet some problems.
Here is 3 steps in my ODB file, the first one is Static, I have successfully get the MISESMAX values by your TOOL.
And the second step is Frenquency, I don't real need any values in this step.
But for the 3rd step, which is Random Response, I can't use the 'readElementFieldodb' function to extract the RMISES or MISES values (The created var 'data' is always a 0*1 cell without any numbers).
Could you help me with it?
Thanks in advance!
I am currently conducting a stencil printing simulation using ABAQUS. The simulation needs to be performed in 20 different locations on the stencil, requiring a separate simulation for each of these locations. In my case, all components remain fixed, and only the location of the blade changes across these 20 locations. The simulation consists of seven steps. Throughout these 20 simulations, all conditions remain identical from the first step until the fifth step. However, after the fifth step, I change the blade's location in the sixth step and continue the simulation in the seventh step.
Given that the first five steps are the same in all simulations, I would like to explore if there is a way to execute these steps only once and then reuse or restart the results for the remaining 19 simulations. In other words, I aim to find a method that avoids repeating the first five steps in the subsequent simulations. Although I have attempted to utilize the restart option, it did not prove successful due to the blade's location change in the sixth step.
