Can I use the Transient structure section to get the strain rate during the loading process

    • Beryl

      Hi Friend,

      I'm trying to use this model to simulate the stress condition under different loading speed, and want to get the strain rate during the process.

      I want to know if I can get the strain rate with Transient structure or I should change for Explicit dynamics section?

      And if yes, how to get the strain rate result?

      Looking forward for your kindly help!

      You can. However, if inertia effects (i.e. acceleration and damping of mass) are negligible, you might want to consider running this as a rate dependent static analysis, where end time has real meaning and rate of loading is important, but inertia effects are not considered. If in doubt, run it as a full transient and as a rate dependent static and compare the two results.
