2013-1-4 · For connector stop you define minimal and maximal connector position (it is connector length no connector displacement). Lets make simple example with keywords. Initial length of your connector is 25.0 mm and you want to set stop. when the connector extend by 10.0 mm and shrink by 15.0 mm you need to define stop as follow

• ### How can I change friction coefficient for connector

2018-3-14 · In Abaqus in the Connector Sections one can specify the friction coefficient and also it can depend on the field variables. Although I use the USDFLD subroutine to define fields no influence happened on the frictions during analysis. My opinion is that the USDFLD is not called during analysis for the connector elements.

• ### Connector elements

2016-9-21 · Connector elements in Abaqus allow most physical connections to be modeled with a single connector element. However in certain circumstances more complex connections or output considerations may require multiple connector elements to be used in parallel. This is accomplished by defining two or more connector elements between the same nodes.
