I am studying an adhesion model between galvanized steel and concrete. The model consists of a galvanized steel tube (internally filled with concrete) and a concrete cube.May 21, 2021 at 11:17 am1shanAnsys EmployeeThere is a loss of stiffness ( -ve load deflection curve) post peak which results in convergence difficulties and thus artificial damping is used to stabilize the solution. Could you try increasing your artificial damping coefficient to 10-4 (or higher) and see if that helps. https://www.ansystips.com/2018/01/adhesive-czm-ansys-parameters.html?m=1 is a very interesting article on adhesive modelling using CZM. Do check out the model setup used along with this insightful article https://www.padtinc.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/oldblog/PADT_TheFocus_56.pdf.

At this moment I already have a post-peak response, however it is not the intended one and I would like your help
What I tried to do was implement above commands (https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v194/ans_ctec/ctec_czmhealing.html?q=czm) in the tack contact zone simultaneously with the CZM).
What happens next is that there is a post-peak response, but as seen in the graph (above images), it's still far from what I want. Can someone help me please? Thanks.
