I have tried to get the stress strain curve of a steel SA516 according to ASME BPVC VIII div 2.
My material has a yield strength of fy=260 MPa at room temperature (20 ºC).
As far as I know ansys needs to know plastic stress when plastic strain =0. In the following picture I have plotted true stress vs plastic strain (colum K vs colum A of the Excel). However, when placing the zero plasticity at yield strength (for fy=260MPa; ep=0), it is like my curve mismatches, (circled in blue). It is not unirform at that point.March 17, 2022 at 1:20 pmjonsolnSubscriberHi!
At yield stress you already have 0,2% plastic strain (definition of yield strength). Using this as zero plastic strain will give you a discontinuous stress-strain curve. It is not very clear in earlier versions of the BPVC, but in the newest version I think it is explicitly stated that you should use a cutoff value for plastic strain of 2e-5 (if i remember correctly). Hence the first point in your plasticity model should be 130MPa with 0 plastic strain.

You will still get the same stress-strain curve above 260MPa. There are no requirements in the elastic-plastic methods of BPVC of having zero plastic strain, so it doesn't matter if you have some plastic strain at low stress levels.

Thank you so much jonsoln, I really appreciate your help
