Ansys Mechanical failure criterion for fiber reinforced composites

      Hi,


      I tried to analyze a model with composite materials. I want to make sure for failure criterion such as "Fiber tensile failure criterion", any number higher than 1 means a failure for that element?


      I also found out the damage status is always 0 even in ACP (Post) the element is failed.


      Thanks,

      Both failure criteria are Max Strain.
