Hi mpirkle,


 


Then you may want to use "PLNSOL, FAIL, HFIB" for Hashin fiber failure criterion or "PLNSOL, FAIL, HMAT" for Hashin matrix fiber criterion. The reference can be found here:

For the Hashin Failure criterion theory, here are the equations from the Ansys help: https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v201/en/ans_thry/thy_str4.html?q=hashin%20theory I think these are the failure variable you are talking about. 



Hopefully this helps.


Regards,


Wenlong
