How do I assign two laws/criterions to one material model?

      I didn't get an answer on my last discussion, so I will ask again, but I will keep it easier to understand.nI have a contact zone defined for CZM Debonding. But I need two laws to describe the behaviour of the cohesive contact, a linear and a expotential law. Can someone help me please? nHow do I assign a second law for Debonding? And which exactly I need to use?n

      nI've already checked both discussions, but thank you for your help.nDid you get my exact problem? Do I need to:na) Use two laws for one contact (CZM) Material (but I don't know how)?nnb) Use two different CZM materials for the same contact to get the same result?nnIt's a question about the capabilities of ANSYS I think, but I couldn't find any help about this topic.nnRegards,nFlattern

      Hi Flatter,nnYou can use userCZM UPF subroutine to define own CZM law.nnRegards,nAshish Khemkan
