## How do I do multiple restarts is ABAQUS ?

Tue, 2019-03-26 17:30 - rajan_prithiviHello All,

I have been trying to restart an ABAQUS simulation using the command line. The following works fine

########

abaqus job=restart1.inp oldjob=OLD user=UMAT.f cpus=160 scratch=$PWD interactive

########

But when I do the restart for the second time like the following, It gives me an error

## Critical porosity in the fatigue of additively manufactured IN718 via crystal plasticity modeling

Mon, 2019-03-25 15:33 - rajan_prithivihttps://doi.org/10.1016/j.matdes.2018.04.022

Highlights

1. Critical porosity is estimated in additively manufactured IN718 via crystal plasticity.

2. Porosity is characterized using high resolution tomography.

3. Non-local damage indicator parameters identify the location of fatigue crack initiation.

## How are principal planes & eigen vectors of the stress tensor related ? | An intuitive explanation

Sun, 2017-07-23 00:17 - rajan_prithiviTo obtain the principal planes we construct the stress tensor and find the eigen vectors. Here is an attempt to explain it more intuitively rather than the use of the formal mathematical method. Hope you enjoy this video!

## Failure of brittle materials using simple experiments- Part 2

Mon, 2017-06-26 12:44 - rajan_prithiviHere is my second video, where I tried to explain the concepts of stress state, principal stresses, Mohr circle and failure theories in layman's language and associated these concepts to explain the failure of a brittle material. This is an educational outreach initiative mainly targeted at the undergraduates (mechanical/civil/aerospace and materials engineering) studying mechanics and also other me
