To increase the Abaqus software capabilities, we propose a strategy to force the software to activate hidden degrees of freedom and to include extra coupled phenomena. As an illustration, we apply this approach to the simulation of a reaction diffusion process, the Gray-Scott model, which exhibits very complex patterns. Several setups have been considered and compared with available results to analyze the abilities of our strategy and to allow the inclusion of complex phenomena in Abaqus.
Key words: Reaction-diffusion / finite elements / user subroutines / Gray-Scott model
