Can failure models be used in implicit scheme (static structrual) in Ansys Workbenc?

      Hello,


       


      Ansys workbench provides failure models in explicit dynamics such as plastic strain failure, principle stress failure...etc, see the screenshot. However, there failure models don't exist in static structural (implicit scheme). Is there a way one can use these failure models in static structural?


       


      Thank you.

      Some damage and failure criteria can be defined but not all of them. Please refer to the Material Reference (MAPDL manual) from the help.

      Thank you for quick answer.


      I see you are suggesting Mechanical APDL. Since I am new to APDL, I have a follow-up question. 


      If I were to apply 'plastic strain failure' criteria in static structural, can you please provide any reference where I can learn the steps?
