Dear all,
I’m trying to model multilayer soil in abaqus. To use the SaniSand umat in model I use the following parameters but no plastic strain at all. The unit system used is us(in). Are the input parameters incorrect?
Could anyone kindly help me solve this problem? Thanks a lot!.

Hey Yousef
The parameters look generally ok. Rather close to the original calibration of Dafalias & Manzari for Toyoura Sand. If you are using US units check if your G0 parameter, which is indeed unitless, is still 125 or is it different value.
Good luck
Piotr
Hello
Thank you for replay
G0 is a dimensionless constant, but by changing its value, PE is STEEL equal to zero.
Hey Yousef
As mentioned by Arie, PE is not calculated by the umat. It is calculated only by the constitutive models implemented in Abaqus. If you want to see if plastic strains occur from the umat, then read umat carefully and try to ask for your own output in log file. I am not sure if you can ask for the actual value of the plastic strain.
Piotr
What do you mean “no plastic strain”?
Sanisand umat does not calculate plastic strain: it is a kinematic hardening model with one backstress.
It only needs and calculates plastic strain rate.
Thank you for replay
PE in visualization always is zero
though with chang in load and b.c
is this correct؟
Or do you mean you miss plastic strain input?
Hardening behavior is described by the hardening parameters
i set depvar=36
and check pe in field output in step
and select umat in job
Something else needs to be done؟
select pe has no use: it is not calculated by sanisand.
You can select SDV output but then you get all 36 statevar. (you cannot select a few)
It will make your odb larger but it gives you more information.
