Reinforced Concrete SOLID65 with new Reinforcement model

      Hi

      Is it possible to create a reinforced concrete model using the SOLID65 element for the concrete and the embedded reinforcement (automatic) model type for reinforcement?

      My aim is to investigate both plastic behavior and cracking / crushing :)

      Best regards

      Hi

       

      That will not work (using soild65) - see reinf264/265 for the allowed base elements (e.g., solid185/186, etc but not of course solid65).

       

      All the best
