Concrete Material-CPT215

      Hi everyone, I am modeling a reinforced shearwall. I used the following code for concrete material in my model. Is the code below correct? The model works, but I used the material curve instead of the DP model recommended for concrete. For steel reinforcements, I used the REINFORCEMENT option, which is new to Ansys. Do you think it is the right approach ?

      CPT215 can not be used with reinforcements. https://forum.ansys.com/discussion/26384/how-can-we-model-failure-in-reinforced-concrete-rc-slabs is one very good workflow posted by our expert. You may use this.
