      Hello! I want to apply surface traction between Concrete and rebar in ANSYS Structure, Is it possible?nThank you in advanced! I will appreciate all your advices and guides!n

      If by surface traction you mean discrete sticking and sliding behavior between rebar and concrete, you cannot model this behavior with mesh independent reinforcement as described in Mechanical Users Guide=> Special Topics=> Reinforcement Specification Methods using Mesh Independent Methods. See online docs for more details of load condition specifications, post processing and limitations.https://ansysproducthelpqa.win.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v202/en/wb_sim/ds_reinforcement.html%23ds_rein_PostnIf you model the rebar discretely as solid body separate from the concrete, this could be possible using surface to surface contact and CZM material specifications at the interface, but might not be very practical.n
