History of API of simcoon

v1.9.0

The new version of simcoon has been released! It includes many new features, notably:

  • New functions for finite strain, especially to define objective stress rates (Jaumann, Green-Naghdi)
  • Generation of Periodic boundary conditions for Thermal-Mechanical studies of periodic Unit Cells (boxes)
  • Tests for regular contitutive models and identification tools

v1.8

Added the possibility/examples to develop an Abaqus UMAT with the simcoon API

v1.7

Added thermomechanical couplings of viscoelastic materials (Prony series or Zener with N branches)

v1.6

Added thermomechanical couplings for most basic constitutive models, except N-branches viscoelasticity

v1.5

Added tools for the definition of Abaqus input files automatically: steps, materials and sections

v1.4

Added tools for the generation of periodic boundary condition for parallelepipedic unit cells, considering non-periodic meshes.

v1.3

Added tools for the generation of periodic boundary condition for parallelepipedic unit cells

v1.2

Addition of Finite strain functions the API

v1.1

Addition of thermomechanical constitutive laws for:

  • elasticity, plasticity, phase transformation (shape memory alloys)

v1.0

Stable version of simcoon that contained the followinf features:

  • Non-linear solver working with infinitesimal strains
  • constitutive equations for elasticity, plasticity, viscoelasticity, phase transformation (shape memory alloys)
  • identification tool
  • micromechanical algorithms and periodic layers

v0.9

First release of simcoon: Basic features from the former ‘smartplus’ library
