Abaqus Code for a Residual Control Staggered Solution Scheme for the Phase-Field Modeling of Brittle Fracture

Published: 29 Oct 2018 | Version 2 | DOI: 10.17632/p77tsyrbx2.2

Description of this data

Abaqus UEL and UMAT subroutines for the phase-field modeling of brittle fracture. The code consists of the 3-layered system of user elements and user material subroutine producing a staggered algorithm with a residual norm based stopping criterion. The elements are 4-node full integration 2D linear elements.

The codes along with input files for two benchmark examples from the associated journal article are given.
