Abaqus Subroutines

 
In the past few years our research thrusts have focused primarily on the multi-physics behavior of polymeric materials.  In the course of this work, we have written various user material subroutines when the built in material models are insufficient.  Additionally, in cases where the physics are not solved by existing elements, we have written user element subroutines.  In what follows we present a brief summary along with the Fortran code and references for a few cases that should prove useful to the community in enabling further research without the need for repeating previous work.

Some of the following are intended for classroom use as part of teaching, however, they may be useful to the community and are posted here as well.

The authors assume no responsibility for errors or omissions in the software or documentation.  Due to time constraints, the authors are generally unable to respond to requests for assistance in using this software.
