Plasticity area


Is it possible to extract ‘VARI_ELGA’ or ‘VARI_ELNO’ fields for elasto-plastic calculations?

Kind regards,

Hi Vic,

Thanks for posting your question. I’m not sure on this, perhaps my colleague @rszoeke knows.

Hi @vic,
currently we don’t expose the possibility to add the intern variables as a solution field, you should add a feature request in the vote for features category.

Additionally we currently only support nodal solution fields, so we would need to find a way to also enable elemental and Gauss point data in the post-processor.


Thank you for the reply.

Is there any solution to find the area where was plastic deformation?
