Abstract

The aim of this paper is the implementation of a 3D fraction al viscoelastic constitutive law in a user material subroutine (UMAT) in the finite element software Abaqus. Essential to the implementation of the model is access to the strain history at each Gauss point of each element in a constructive manner. Details of the UMAT and comparison with some analytical results are presented in order to show that the fractional viscoelastic constitutive law has been successfully implemented.
