Non-linear properties of steel

      Can you tell the material properties to be assigned before doing explicit dynamics. I have just assigned material as structural steel. Due to this I can see plastic strain as zero. How can I assign plastic properties to see plastic strain in explicit dynamics?n

      Hi,nYou can choose nonlinear steel in Engineering Data. Go to General Non-linear Materials, and select Structural Steel NL. You can see the material has plasticity defined. nn
