Non Local Model

Number of elements in a vectorized subroutine into LS DYNA

Dear all,

I'm writting an usermat into a vectorized subroutine in LS DYNA. The implementation is a non-local model based on an avarage of the strains.

For the implementation I need to know the strains for all the elements at each iteration to compute the non-local strains of all the elements.

Non Local Model Vs Implicit Gradient Model

Hi All :


I was wondering why some people prefer to use Non Local Model while some others use Implicit Gradient Model (which can be derived from Non Local Model) .

When implicit Gradient Model is itself derived from Non Local Model ,and its FE implimentation just involves an additional average to be calculated and what is the need to introduce gradient terms ??


Thanks Alot
