Abaqus - Boundary Conditions Comparison of two models

  1. Sep 26, 2016 #1
    Hi everyone,
    This is my first time posting here

    I am looking to get some help with Abaqus,

    I wish to compare two models and find the residual stress which causes a original model to deform to the other. The deflection between the two models can be calculated by other software.

    I plan to do this by setting displacement boundary conditions to a number of node points the model which will force the first models mesh to deform the the shape of the other. Abaqus would then calculate the resulting stress which, if I am correct, would be the negative of the residual stress in the original part.

    At the moment I am manually setting known displacements as boundary condition to nodes a simplified mesh over the original model.

    I was wondering if there was a way to directly set the displacements as the second model to give a more accurate result.

    Thanks for any input.

    Thanks for the thread! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post? The more details the better.
