Step definition for Abaqus modules
The .INP files for the Abaqus modules do not run without step definitions. The step definitions(from example manual) have been defined as:
*STEP, INC=100000, NLGEOM
This I guess applies a unit displacement along dof 1 and 6. Why are we doing this?? Why 1.0? And what all dofs should we do this too? And it won’t run without defining the ‘step’ in the Abaqus INP file(unlike Opensees modules where no step definition is required) I would greatly appreciate if you could answer this question.
