## Simulation of a bolted T-stub with ABAQUS

About one year ago, I tried to analyze a bolted T-stub to test the analysis method of bolted connections and verify my abaqus model referring to a journal paper, unfortunately, I could not find that paper now. Though I would not focus on steel connections in the future, I still want to make a summary of this simulation in order not to waste the effort one year ago. Due to the symmetry of this stub, only half is modeled as

## Examples of extracting matrices from ABAQUS

2D frame This is a plane steel frame with box sections subjected to a point load at one node figured as below. An dynamic implicit analysis step was defined and the following lines were added at the end of input file. ** *STEP *MATRIX GENERATE, STIFFNESS, MASS, LOAD, Structural Damping,Viscous Damping *MATRIX OUTPUT, STIFFNESS, MASS, LOAD, Structural Damping,Viscous Damping, FORMAT=COORDINATE *END STEP
