I am doing a nonlinear static analysis with SOL601. I have set XTCURVE=0, so when the elements reach the maximum stress they are not more considered in the analysis. How I can check on FEMAP if the elements "die"?which one and when?
When the element "ruptures", it no longer has results available in Femap. So make sure you request output at enough increments that you can identify at what load level the element results become zero.See the following screen shots below. The first is load level .50 and the yield stress is set to 30000, the second the load has increased to .56 and the element no longer has results.
