Plastic Strain Not Available

Hi all,

 

I'm working on a transient thermal model in APDL, that uses three materials, one of which uses bilinear kinematic plasticity. I believe I'm setting up the plasticity correctly, however when I go to retrieve results via "plnsol,eppl,eqv", I am met with the error message:  

"The requested eppl data is not available, the PLNSOL command is ignored."

I've included the section where I define the bkin plasticity below, and have also attached my full code in TXT format. Am I doing something wrong? What am I missing here, why aren't the plastic strains available despite the selected material going past yeild?

Thanks,

Ben

    Hello Ben, 

     

    Could you please paste your full code instead of attaching.

    Hi Rohith, unfortunately I can't include the complete code because it's a transient analysis with hundreds of timesteps. I've pasted a shortened version with only a few timesteps.

    Hello Ben,

    I had a look at your script. 

    You are using an undocumented element, Solid5. It must have been simply a post-processing bug with this element. 

    Please use current technology element, Solid226 (with Keyopt(1) set according to the physics) instead along with Conta174 (for contact). 

    I did a quick check with the above modification and I can post-process plastic strain now.

    Hope this helps.

    Best regards,

    Rohith
