Microplane concrete output results

      Hello everyone!

      I have been trying to simulate cyclic loading on reinforced concrete columns for some time now. In my initial tests, I have succesfully calibrated the F-D curves for a monotonic loading model using elastic microplane model using SOLID185 and REINF264 elements.

      According to ansys manual we can see the homogenized and maximum damage parameters using DMAC and DMAX in POST PROCESSING but I am not sure how to fetch these results in WORKBENCH.

      Kindly guide me in viewing the damage results.

      Also can anyone guide me how to adjust the initial curve of the F-D curve, I tired changing the E, Gamma values but it doesn't get better than this!

      Hi, if this isn't available directly via the GUI, you may be able to plot these use something like the following in a command object in the Solution branch:n/post26nnn=node(1,1,1)nnsol,2,nn,u,xnnsol,3,nn,u,ynnsol,4,nn,u,znnesol,7,1,1,s,xnesol,8,1,1,s,ynesol,9,1,1,s,znnesol,10,1,1,mplane,dmaxnesol,5,1,1,mplane,dmacn

      Thanks for your reply, I tried your commands but i get following error.nnDISPLAY ELEMENT SOLUTION, ITEM=MPLA COMP=DMAX nn *** WARNING *** CP = 1.859 TIME= 00:27:46n The requested MPLA data is not available. The PLESOL command is n ignored. nn DISPLAY ELEMENT SOLUTION, ITEM=MPLA COMP=DMAC nn *** WARNING *** CP = 1.859 TIME= 00:27:46n The requested MPLA data is not available. The PLESOL command is n ignored.n

      Hi, try to issue OUTRES,ALL,ALL in a command object the Solution branch (command object should indicate it is in /SOLU module). For instance, try the following:nnOUTRES,ALL,ALLnallselnnThe OUTRES command issued this way will write all miscellaneous quantities to the results file. You may also need to issue:nset,last,lastnin the /post1 command object if you are solving in distributed mode.n

      I have tried using these commands but still unable to view results for other steps except first . How to know if the solver is in distributed mode? n
