      Hi everyone, 

      I'm modeling post-buckling damage of a layered orthotropic fibrous structure. I decided to use hashin failure and CDM with 0.1% initial imperfection (1st mode), but I could not find any source for the range of values I should use for "energy dissipated per unit area" and "viscous damping coefficient" needed for CDM. Any help is appreciated.

      It will be based on your application problem. Will you please check out more details into our material reference section of APDL guide (help)?

      Thanks.
