3.3-1

- Cross-Section Enhancements
- Shear center, warping rigidity and shear correction factors are calculated for all sections, including user mesh
- No hard limits on section size (number of section cells)
- Cross-section mesh refinement
- Needed for accurate shear correction factors & direct shear stress calculations

- Built-up (multi-material) cross-sections
- Applications:
- sandwich beams
- airfoils
- MEMS
- reinforced beams

3.3-5

- Plasticity for BEAM188 and BEAM189
- At revision 5.6, the treatment of material nonlinearities at the section points is based on uncoupled behavior between the stress components
- Axial and the torsional shear stress components behave independently
- As a result of this approximation, the equivalent stress output by PRSSOL may at times exceed yield stress and yet no active yielding is reported

- At revision 5.7, the actual state of stress within the beam is used to perform the plasticity calculation
- The new formulation will release the restriction on the beam elements of handling complete state of stress in plasticity and will provide more realistic state of stress in the beam elements

- At revision 5.6, the treatment of material nonlinearities at the section points is based on uncoupled behavior between the stress components

3.3-6

- Mixed U-P formulation option added to elements: PLANE182, PLANE183, SOLID185, SOLID186, SOLID187
- Includes hydrostatic pressure as an independent DOF

- Applications
- hyper-elastic materials (typically fully incompressible)
- elasto-plastic materials undergoing large plastic strains
- linear elastic materials with Poisson’s ratio > 0.4999

- Advantage - better convergence and more robust
- Disadvantages
- Additional DOF’s (longer solution time per equilibrium iteration)
- Does not support modal and buckling analyses

3.3-7

- Activation
- keyopt(6) = 0, regular formulation (default)
- keyopt(6) = 1 (or 2 for SOLID187), mixed U-P formulation
- The solver (EQSLV command) must be either the frontal solver (default) or the sparse solver - (frontal is recommended)

- Internal nodes used for pressure DOF’s
- Created automatically
- Not accessible by user

*** NOTE *** CP= 54.625 TIME= 14:28:22

Internal nodes from 2360 to 3831 are created.

1472 internal nodes are used for 18x elements with mixed formulation.

3.3-11

- NROPT, Option, --, Adptky
- Option = UNSYM
- Use full Newton-Raphson with unsymmetric matrices of elements where the unsymmetric option exists

- If an unsymmetric matrix is needed for pressure load stiffness effects, use NROPT,UNSYM
- For analyses involving friction, using NROPT,UNSYM is useful (and, in fact, sometimes required) for problems where the normal and tangential (sliding) motions are strongly coupled, such as in a wedge insertion problem
- You should first try NROPT,FULL; then try NROPT,UNSYM if you experience convergence difficulties

- Option = UNSYM
