Contact deformation can cause local damage of mechanical structures and lead to structural failure
of mechanical devices. In this work, we use the finite element method to analyze the indentation-
induced delamination of a film-substrate structure and the critical tensile stress as the criterion to
determine local delamination on the interface between the film and the substrate. The simulation

How to find the average temperature a surface? ABAQUS -Heat transfer -user subroutine

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

I want to model a concrete slab with a void inside the concrete. It is a thermal analyse where I apply a heat flux to the bottom surface. Within the void heat is transferred by radiation and convection. For simulating heat convection within the void, I use the surface film condition function in interaction module. I have to define the film coefficient and sink temperature. I decided to use the average temperature of the void surface for sink temperature. I don’t know how to define the average surface temperature. I think I have to use Abaqus Subroutine.

Poroelastic relaxation indentation of thin layers of gels

We develop a method of poroelastic relaxation indentation (PRI) to characterize thin layers of gels.  The solution to the time-dependent boundary-value problem is obtained in a remarkably simple form, so that the force-relaxation curve obtained by indenting a gel readily determines all the poroelastic constants of the gel—the shear modulus, Poisson’s ratio, and the effective diffusivity.  The method is demonstrated with a layer of polydimethylsiloxane immersed in heptane.
