Dear peteroznewman and Erik Kostson,

Thanks for your answers.

 

answer to peteroznewman:

"Why do you want to sum the Max Principal stress from two copies of the model? You will get double the stress."

Actually I do not sum Max Principal stress, it was just to make the easiest example. I am performing a fatigue analysis and ASME asks to compare strains from elastic-plastic analysis and from elastic analysis.

 

answer to Erik Kostson:

I did not kwnow that I can performe a single analysis modifing material propoerties along the time steps. Unfortunatelly I never used ADPL so this solution is quite complex for my ability because I have several materials in the same model. Maybe if I could deactivate/activate the comand for Nonlinear effect of the material along the time steps, it would be easiest.

Is that possible? Could you please help me to write the adpl code?

 

Regards,

Marco
