The fixed Surface is the casing's base which I assigned it a fixed support.


also the material I have for the casing you mean ? it is phenolic resin from the ANSYS library.


As I dont have the plasticity values for the phenolic resin available so I  have calculated an estimate based on the values used in here https://books.google.de/books?id=6IwG_5hqgGkC&pg=PA95&lpg=PA95&dq=phenoplast+stress+strain+curve&source=bl&ots=bY1QjE0Af_&sig=ACfU3U2CrtmOXGaeP8HK6PR9-M60c_cKgw&hl=de&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj7kd6jmJDoAhVUecAKHWZcDikQ6AEwE3oECAwQAQ#v=onepage&q=phenoplast%20stress%20strain%20curve&f=false


for the phenolic resin in the plot of number 1


I am not entirely sure of which plasticity type to use from the Engineering library 


could you please support me on that
