Comments from LS-DYNA developers in off-line discussion: 1. We are currently working on the capability of splitting a coarser mechanical mesh (used for the mechanics) given by the user into a finer EP mesh (used for EP) within the LS-DYNA simulation. The mapping mechanics-EP between the 2 meshes will be done automatically. 2. The subroutines required to do the mapping of the EP results to the [material] integration points are currently in development. Once they are finished and tested, we'll probably be ready to give you a development version to test. 3. Until developments mentioned above are ready to test, a compromise (coarser) EP mesh is suggested.
