In Details Window of Solution, set Post Processing =>Beam Section Results = Yes.nInsert user defined result and use expression epcrx or epcry, epcrz to plot components of creep strain in the beam body.nThe creep ratio is creep strain/elasstic strain. The limit is arbitrarily set to 1. When this limit is exceeded, it will trigger a bisection until min time is reach, which it sounds like it has been reached. Depending on how large the elastic strain is relative to creep strain, perhaps you need a much higher limit and/or many more time steps.nn
