Because of carelessness, I ran into a ‘problem during linking’ error in Abaqus. The mistake was misspelling a dimensional variable name. That caused the variable used had not been declared.
Although Abaqus allows variables to be used without declaration in VUMAT with the
method, it seems not applicable to the array type variables.
The error message is,
Problem during linking – Single Precision Abaqus/Explicit User Subroutines.
This error may be due to a mismatch in the Abaqus user subroutine arguments.
These arguments sometimes change from release to release, so user subroutines used with a previous release of Abaqus may need to be adjusted.
Hope this can be helpful to someone with the same error. But I think it is NOT the only problem that could trigger this error message.©
