User subroutine to specify nonuniform distributed fluxes in an explicit dynamic coupled temperature-displacement analysis.

User subroutine VDFLUX:

  • can be used to define the variation of the distributed flux as a function of position, temperature, time, velocity, element number, etc. for a group of points in a dynamic coupled thermal-stress analysis using explicit integration (for more information, see Fully coupled thermal-stress analysis);

  • will be called at each flux integration point associated with each element-based or surface-based nonuniform distributed flux definition in the analysis; and

  • recognizes an amplitude reference (Amplitude Curves) if it appears with the associated nonuniform flux definition.
