      Which properties should I consider?nWhich material Model should I consider ?nWill It be complete plasticity behaviour with out any elastic property?n

      Hi,nIf you go to Engineering Data Sources --> ANSYS GRANTA Materials Data for Simulation, you should find a material called Plastic, PP where PP stands for Polypropylene. That material only has isotropic elasticity defined along with Tensile Yield Strength and Tensile Ultimate Strength. If you wish to simulate plastic behavior, then you will have to add one of the plasticity models (e.g. bilinear isotropic hardening, etc.).nnHope this helps,nSain
