I have created a solid particle erosion wear model in explicit dynamics to estimate the mass loss of the plate due to multiple ball impact on the plate.
In the user defined result I used Expression = Erosion and get some results. I have also exported results in excel file and values indicated as 0, 1 and in some cases 0 and 2.
I am unable to understand the meaning of these values.
I have to compare the simulation result and experimental result for wear.
Please guide me about the same.
Screen shot and result file is attached here

Erosion=0 means not eroded, Erosion >0 means eroded

Thank you sir
After knowing the eroded elements my interest is to know the volume of the single element. How can I calculate the volume of single element ??

@manvendrayadav Wear and element erosion are normally quite different in terms of amount of material removal. If you want to actually wear, then you may want to investigate either a time transient solution with the Mechanical APDL solver (Mechanical is the pre/post processor). Wear can be added to a contact pair. Or if the model is best solved with an explicit code then Workbench LS-Dyna can also include wear.

@mrife Thank You !!
My interest is to estimate the loss of material of a plate due to the impact of several impact of the particles.
