In Explicit Dynamics system, once simulation is done, you can highlight the Solution in Tree Outline and then click on Worksheet on the top toolbar to open the window of User-Defined Results. nAmong these results, you can plot YLD_STRESS to watch the change of current yield stress with plastic strain (strain hardening), plastic strain rate (strain rate hardening), and local temperature (thermal softening).nYou can also plot EPS_RATE for Effective Plastic Strain Rate or other stress/strain components to monitor their change in time and in space.n
