Thank you very much for your quick answer.

Yes, the simulation was performed with an explicit time integration, a quasi-static simulation. As additional information, can I mention that for the material model they use a hardening power of low for the plastic regime and a polynomial curve as function of plastic deformation for the damage evolution.

For the ansys MAPDL I already defined the impact through a contact pair and for the plate (Indenter: target 170 and contact surface: conta 174 elements) I use a shell element (shell 181) and for the material model I will define a multilinear isotropic hardening curve from the material data for the plastic regime but for the damage evolution and to generate the breaking of the steel plate, I don't know how it proceeds.

Which explicit solvers could I use to do this? I would really appreciate your help.

Thank you.
