I am running an analysis that uses a failure criteria, but, when I visualize the results, the failed elements are shown, messing up the post processing. Is possible to suppress them in the results?

Eroded elements should be removed by default. What are your failure criteria?

I used max. strain of 0.16
I misinterpreted the results. The eroded elements are not shown (As you can see in the attached file).
In any case, there are elements that comply with the max strain but are too deformed.
Do you see anything strange in my results?

If you are using reduced integration elements, I am not too worried about these. Keep an eye on the Hourglass Energy and on Energy conservation. It looks like these elements have a high aspect ratio even in the refined region, hence the stretching and odd shapes. Look at the mesh quality.
Try a maximum strain of 0.15 and see how much it affects your results. I believe you will see complete separation?

I am using low integration elements, so the analysis can run faster.
How can I check the hourglass energy in workbench?

Thank you Sandeep,
I think I found out what the problem was. It turned out that it was simpler than that.
The erosion control for the material failure was not checked in the analysis settings.
One last question: In that model, I wasn't able to check the reaction forces. Is there another way to do that?

I am using version 18.1
I'll check with the university if it is possible to upgrade the version.
