ABAQUS transfer strains to another model

ABAQUS transfer strains to another model


I'm currently trying to transfer strains and residual stresses from a thermo-mechanical simulation to another model to perform a fracture mechanics crack analysis. The issue I run into is that there is a predefined field for stress I can use to import the residual stresses, but there is none for strain (specifically plastic strains). I've tried a restart analysis with predefined field=initial state, however, this brings the NLGEOM=ON from the previous model into the LEFM cracked model, but I need NLGEOM=OFF.

Is there another method to transfer residual stresses and strains from a previous model without also taking the NLGEOM condition over?
