Abaqus Analysis User's Manual, vol3. In an eigenvalue buckling prediction step ABAQUS/Standard first does a static perturbation analysis to determine the incremental stresses, due to. If the base state did not include geometric nonlinearity, the stiffness matrix used in this static perturbation analysis is the tangent elastic stiffness. Jan 16, 2017  Dear Abaqus Users, New Video on Nonlinear Buckling Example. In this example we are going to model Aluminium Cylinder buckling load estimation. We have made this video to help Abaqus users.

In an eigenvalue buckling problem we look for the loads for which the model stiffness matrix becomes singular, so that the problem

has nontrivial solutions. is the tangent stiffness matrix when the loads are applied, and the are nontrivial displacement solutions. The applied loads can consist of pressures, concentrated forces, nonzero prescribed displacements, and/or thermal loading.

Eigenvalue buckling is generally used to estimate the critical buckling loads of stiff structures (classical eigenvalue buckling). Stiff structures carry their design loads primarily by axial or membrane action, rather than by bending action. Their response usually involves very little deformation prior to buckling. A simple example of a stiff structure is the Euler column, which responds very stiffly to a compressive axial load until a critical load is reached, when it bends suddenly and exhibits a much lower stiffness. However, even when the response of a structure is nonlinear before collapse, a general eigenvalue buckling analysis can provide useful estimates of collapse mode shapes.

The buckling loads are calculated relative to the base state of the structure. If the eigenvalue buckling procedure is the first step in an analysis, the initial conditions form the base state; otherwise, the base state is the current state of the model at the end of the last general analysis step (see General and linear perturbation procedures, Section 6.1.2). Thus, the base state can include preloads (“dead” loads), . The preloads are often zero in classical eigenvalue buckling problems.

If geometric nonlinearity was included in the general analysis steps prior to the eigenvalue buckling analysis (see General and linear perturbation procedures, Section 6.1.2), the base state geometry is the deformed geometry at the end of the last general analysis step. If geometric nonlinearity was omitted, the base state geometry is the original configuration of the body.

So I'm trying to model a column with 4 rigid links for a buckling analysis. The overall structure is simply supported and there is also a linear spring at the middle joint. Each of the rigid links are connected to the one below via a rotational spring. I attached the model for reference.
However, when I try to run it, this error pops up: DIFFERENTIAL STIFFNESS MATRIX IS COMPLETELY NULL. THE EIGENPROBLEM CANNOT BE SOLVED. IN A *BUCKLE ANALYSIS THE MOST LIKELY CAUSE IS THAT A NONZERO LOADING PATTERN WAS NOT SPECIFIED VIA *BOUNDARY, *CLOAD, *DLOAD, ETC,.
What does this error mean/how can I fix it? Thanks!
BTW, this model is with analytical rigid parts for the links but the same error occurs with the discrete rigid parts too.
