This error occurred yesterday when I tried to run an Abaqus/Explicit model with around 5 million elements having user defined material.At this time, the Monitor page of the Job shows nothing helpful but several trivial Warnings on ELEMENT TYPE and VUMAT.
之前使用学校的自动升级程序安装的 Abaqus 6.14.3 居然没有自动连接 Fortran 编译器，导致使用用户子程序的时候发生编译错误。试了好半天才找到解决办法，记录备查。
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.
My model with about 300,000 mesh elements run into an error after a little while of job starting, with the system error code 1073740940. It worked after I reduced the number of elements to about 150,000 with remesh. I am not sure whether this is a computer performance related problem. It’s worth a try when running into this type of error.
Abaqus error message “The interaction “Int-1″ references a contact property (IntProp-1) that contains the damage or cohesive behavior option. These options cannot be specified for this type of interaction.”
Surface-based cohesive behavior 用于模拟 bonded interface。 但是它不用用于 Surface to Surface Interaction. 否则会遇到错误提示，”Surface based COHESIVE BEHAVIOR cannot be used for contact pair interactions. See the surface iteraction named INTPROP-1.”
When using Bottom-up Mesh in Abaqus, sometimes an error message of “boundary conditions reference regions which contains geometric entities that are not associated with a mesh” may pop up after submit the job. One of my colleague suggested following tip to solve it.
Abaqus 可能会提示有些 Elements 出现了过度变形，并提示可以通过 element set ErrElemExcessDistortion 查看。即使该模拟中途因错结束，也可以在输出中查看到这些单元。
刚才遇到一个新鲜的 Abaqus 错误：The executable explicit.exe aborted with system error code 3。所用 Abaqus 版本为 6.13-1。这个错误出现的原因似乎很多，在我遇到这个例子中是因为单元过度变形（distorted excessively）的数目太多。
