How is possible to control condition "Allow Element Rupture" in SOL601. More precisely, is it possible to set Von Mises stress as a criteria or a plastic strain percent? Any suggestion wolud be helpful, thanks.

Element rupture is specified by the limit of the Stress vs. Strain or Stress vs Plastic Strain function specified in the Nonlinear tab of the Material dialog box.
