%TABAQUS Code for the Simulation of Topologically Interlocked Material Systems with Skewed Building Blocks
%XThis publication provides files for the finite element simulation of the mechanical behavior of a set of topologically interlocked material (TIM) systems.
Files are to be executed with the FE code ABAQUS (TM), Simulia Inc., or need a file translator to be used by other codes if needed. Files are provided for even (i=10) and odd (i=11) numbered square assemblies of (i x i) blocks confined by a rigid frame and subjected to a transverse displacement load at the assembly center.
The following files are provided:
The simulations are executed as explicit dynamic simulations with a mass-scale approach to extract the quasi-static response. Building blocks are linear elastic and interact with neighbors by contact and friction.
