ABAQUS read spring force and relative displacement with python scripting

ABAQUS read spring force and relative displacement with python scripting

(OP)
Hello,

How could I extract the force and displacement results (S11, E11) of all the spring elements in a model? Is it possible to identify the springs through python scripting?

Thank you!

Might be easier to save history output for them and then access it in the database:

CODE -->

*OUTPUT, HISTORY
*ELEMENT OUTPUT, ELSET=SPRINGS
E11, S11 

Of course, you have to define that elset with all spring element numbers.

Thank you! And how can I define elset? I couldn't find their element numbers. Is there a place to look them up?

RE: ABAQUS read spring force and relative displacement with python scripting

They will be defined like this:

CODE -->

*ELEMENT, TYPE=SPRING… 

The first number in each data line is element number.

Then you can define an elset like this:

CODE -->

*ELSET, ELSET=SPRINGS
