Dear Peteroznewman,

Thank you very much for your reply, I have read the articles on CZM, but defining them for my material in ANSYS is confusing. In Ansys, for some models, I cant even see an option for Fracture. Could you please help me further with the problem. I wanted to simulate the mechanical push test in ANSYS, resulting the Force Vs Displacement graphs. Is it possible to get the same Force Vs Displa. graphs in ANSYS too ?. Thank you in advance.
