Hi Sahil,


Thank you so much! I see that CPT215 is a 3D 8 node element that supports Regularized damage. Could you please help me how to mesh with such elements from workbench? I have a cube but that is currently having Solid185. And based on the list, it seems I cannot use creep for such materials and have to use some of the hardening law.


I am trying to model a creep simulation such that I (at least) get the on-set of tertiary creep. Is that at all possible in ANSYS? I have done that before by combining Power law creep (for secondary creep) and Regularized/Kachanov-Rabonov damage law, but in open source codes.
