OOF2 thickness of a stone and mortar wall

OOF2 thickness of a stone and mortar wall

OOF2 thickness of a stone and mortar wall

hi guys,

I'm a new user of OOF2. I want to lead a linear static FEM analysis of a wall made of stones and mortar by using OOF2.
I've already defined my model in terms of materials, boundary conditions and load.

btw, among the input data, I didn't find a field where I could put the thickness of my wall. is it possible take into account the thickness of my wall?


RE: OOF2 thickness of a stone and mortar wall

You are aware that this is the Abaqus forum?

RE: OOF2 thickness of a stone and mortar wall

@Mustaine3 I'm sorry, I've searched in this forum "OOF2" and I've seen that there were other questions about this topic, for this reason, I've posted here.
Let me know where I can move this question to a more appropriate section, thanks :)

RE: OOF2 thickness of a stone and mortar wall

Never heard about this before, so I do not have a clue.

If you are looking though to generate an Abaqus input file from this software, then perhaps someone could help.

Give some more info then; do you have an input file and is it missing section properties (it is not clear what you mean with your post)? is it a brick/3D mesh or a shell/plate model??…..

If it is more related to OOF2 GUI and that it does not give the option to assign sections, then it is better to talk to the developers, or if they have a forum.
(I assume this is the case, but I was not sure 100%).

In any case more info and explanation is needed, in order for someone to help.

PS: A quick look in the manual (section, 2.5 - mesh), shows that it solves for plane strain and stress, so effectively the thickness dimension seems to be removed.

White Paper - Guide to Integrate Large-Format Additive
As with any new technology, getting into large-format 3D printing begins with investigation. The first question may be a simple one: what does “large-format” mean? For 3D printers, “large” is a relative term. Many extrusion-based (FFF) 3D printers are referred to as desktop machines, because they fit on table space. Some of these have very respectable build volumes – but when it comes to “large-format,” the machines will need their own dedicated floor space. Large-format 3D printers have significant build volumes and are most often found in professional settings, like manufacturing facilities and R&D centers. Download Now
eBook - Efficient and Effective Production Support with 3D Printed Jigs and Fixtures
Jigs and fixtures offer manufacturers a reliable process for delivering accurate, high-quality outcomes, whether for a specific part or feature, or for consistency across multiples of parts. Although the methodologies and materials for producing jigs and fixtures have evolved beyond the conventional metal tooling of years past, their position as a manufacturing staple remains constant due to the benefits they offer.
