User subroutine to redefine field variables at a material point.

User subroutine VUSDFLD:

  • allows the redefinition of field variables at a material point as functions of time or of any of the available material point quantities listed in Available output variable keys;

  • can be used to introduce solution-dependent material properties since such properties can be easily defined as functions of field variables;

  • will be called at all material points of elements for which the material definition includes user-defined field variables;

  • can call utility routine VGETVRM to access material point data; and

  • can use and update solution-dependent state variables.
