Beyond the maximum force point, you must extrapolate the true stress strain behavior (or experimentally determine the stress strain behavior at large strains with a shear test).
concrete in ABAQUS, a post failure stress-strain relationship for concrete subjected to tension (similar to Fig. 01) is used which accounts for tension stiffening, strain-softening, and reinforcement.
As shown in Figure 23.6.3–1, when the concrete specimen is unloaded from any point on the strain softening branch of the stress-strain curves, the unloading .
The inelastic constitutive theory provided in ABAQUS/Standard for modeling cohesionless materials is based on the critical state plasticity theory developed by Roscoe and his colleagues at Cambridge (Schofield et al., 1968, and Parry, 1972).
“UHARD,” Section 1.1.31 of the Abaqus User Subroutines Reference Manual Although the model is referred to as a “hardening” model, strain softening.
As shown in Figure 20.6.3–1, when the concrete specimen is unloaded from any point on the strain softening branch of the stress-strain curves, the unloading .
A key feature of the model is the hardening/softening concept, which is developed by the extent of initial overconsolidation) strain softening or strain hardening (clay) plasticity model,” Section 11.3.4 of the ABAQUS Analysis User's Manual.
Mesh-dependence of Material with Softening Behavior the basic unknown quantities are displacement, non-local equivalent strain and the gradient of non-local equivalent strain. 18: Hibbitt K, Sorensen I. ABAQUS manuals version.
some references refer that strain softening is important in the analysis RC members subjected to shear or torsion.
“Damage evolution” in “Defining damage,” Section 12.9.3 of the Abaqus/CAE User's A different approach is required to follow the strain-softening branch of the .
strain softening. I have looked at Abaqus tutorial and it's written there: "It is possible to define the material to be strain softening as well as strain hardening." However, if one implements.
thermal softening that occurs due to the large plastic strains. 1.3 Analysis Results and Comparison to Experiment Experimental results are shown for copper specimens of three different grain sizes in Figure3.
If you let ABAQUS increase it by default, and then it's forced to cut-back because it's rather too large when (say) gross yield or softening cuts in, you can end up completely losing the advantage gained from the previous larger increments.
The damage evolution is based on fracture energy with the quadratic power law for the mixed mode behavior and exponential softening behavior (see “Defining the constitutive response of cohesive elements using a traction-separation description,” Section 29.5.6 of the Abaqus Analysis User's Manual).

Hello, I am having problems performing a non-linear static analysis with strain softening. I cannot use any Structural - Nonlinear - Inelastic - Rate Independen.
