CPT 215: APDL Command for Total Damage, Compression damage, tension damage

    • Plebian Seth Tamba

      Good day, I want to know how to show the total damage, compression damage, and tension damage in my analysis of RC column. I used the command that Dr. daly0 used in his youtube video

      /VIEW,1,1,1,1 !Use these values to change the view
      SET,last !SET,Last = Outputs final result set
      !By DrDalyO

      But it is not showing anything if the analysis have more than one number of steps. I quite new to using APDL commands. We use the same CPT 215 element for concrete using dracker pager model

      Thank you in advance.
