ABAQUS system Error code 1073741819

Finite Element Analysis Error Code System Error Code 1073741819
The first thing to note is that the system error code 1073741819 is a Windows error exit code and not an Abaqus ! This is due to an access conflict, i.e. the program is trying to access a location in memory (RAM or storage) that it is not allowed to access.
Therefore, there are many reasons why Abaqus causes this error. Here are a few, in order of likelihood.

    1. Your model is too large: memory requirements are greater than available, given by the sum of RAM + page file. sys (usually equal to the installed RAM). Some errors in the model formulas escape pre. exe’s checks, so it is translated into an incoherent model in standard.exe. It is usually a syntactically correct but physically inconsistent feature (boundary condition issues, definition of material properties). It is incompatible with CPU architecture. This is usually resolved by changing the suffix of the .dll file, as suggested earlier. If you’re using the most recent version of Abaqus on a recent computer (I bet both versions were released after 2010), this is unlikely


    1. So, how does it work? Here’s a step-by-step debugging process.


    Run an example provided by Abaqus, possibly a simple one. Did it complete correctly? If not, try changing the dll suffix. Does it work? If yes, that’s issue 3. If no, it could be an installation/hardware architecture/hardware failure (e.g. hard drive failure) issue. Try reinstalling Abaqus and/or run a system check. Run your model with a very rough mesh:Is the simulation complete? If so, this is a size issue, i.e. your model needs more memory than is available. Move to a more powerful system or optimize your model: Can you reduce the number of elements? Can you use lower order or reduced order elements? If the coarse grid simulation is incomplete, this is a problem in model formulation. It’s not a syntax error, it’s a physics error: you have defined a parameter that Abaqus can read, but it doesn’t make sense physically. Check the geometry, material definition, boundaries and initial conditions.
