The microplane damage output is not directly available in Workbench Mechanical. You would need a command snippet to output that.
"PLESOL, MPDP, TOTA"
Please refer to PLESOL for more information: https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v192/ans_cmd/Hlp_C_PLESOL.html?q=plesol
And here is an example you can try:
! Graphics power needs to be turned on to view the rebars
! Enter /post1 module
! Show result as a png image
! Set the frame as the last substep of the 1st step
! Select the SOLID185 elements
/trlcy,elem,0.5 ! Change them to transparent level 0.5 (0 is solid, 1 is completely transparent)
! Set view angle
! Show the whole section of the reinforcement
! Plot displacement
! Plot damage

Hmm, what about using these commands:
It works for me:
If it still doesn't work, maybe checking the concrete model? Is it possible you are using the Regularized Elastic Damage Microplane Material model? You can find more info about the material model here: https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v201/en/ans_mat/microplane.html?q=microplane. You can also do a search "output" in that website to find related information.

I already try your latest snippet but it still wont show..I'm using couple damage-plasticity microplane model, using CPT215 element with 2 extra DOF, here the snippet
Or is there additional step or something that I have to activated?
when I check at solution information it says:
*** WARNING *** CP = 0.969 TIME= 15:43:50
The requested MPDP data is not available. The PLNSOL command is

@DrDalyo, in prep7 snippet, make sure to request all solution: OUTRES,ALL,ALL
And Here my latest snippet to plot the damage:
!Change White Background
/RGB,INDEX, 80, 80, 80,13
/RGB,INDEX, 60, 60, 60,14
/RGB,INDEX, 0, 0, 0,15
To test my command and make it simple, I'm modeling cube uniaxial test (on my previous post), and assigning the microplane properties on solid body (same format with your attached snippet). But the damage only show if I used single element, if I mesh the cube, the damage plot wont show..still dont know how to figure it out

October 7, 2020 at 7:42 pmvaibhavtaranekarSubscriberArrayI am unable to view the damage at other steps whenever i try to use Set,2,last or any other substep, i don't get any output.n
January 5, 2021 at 8:39 pmDrDalyOSubscriberHi vaibhavtaranekar, I found the same issue as you. It seems like the damage outputs do not work in workbench when there is more than 1 step. Could be we have the commands wrong. A workaround that I used was instead of using steps, just use time. So I created a model that goes to 2s, instead of 1s, and then apply the loading conditions differently at 1s and 2s which basically comes out to the same thing as 2 steps. This method then works, and you can output the damage models at different times. I posted a brand new video on this here!:nn
