October 25, 2020 at 12:37 pmot2020SubscriberHi, nBy default, ANSYS workbench allocates SOLID187 to model concrete. Would using this be fine for a bond test between rebar and concrete? I.e. both the structural steel and concrete are of the same element type?
October 29, 2020 at 3:39 pmKaiAnsys EmployeeI'm not aware of any problems with using solid187 for both steel and concrete. If you run into any problems, can you provide more information?n
October 30, 2020 at 2:39 amot2020SubscribernSure. How can I model the cracks that appear in the concrete using SOLID187? I am doing a pull out of steel rebar from concrete and want to see how the concrete cracks as its being pulled out. Can this be done using the SOLID187 element? nThanks! n
