Stress-displacement curve

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am simulating tensile tests with welded samples. I am using NLQS analysis in Optistruct, according to the eBook Introduction to Non Linear Finite Element Analysis using Optistruct.

 

My problem is that the stress-displacement curve after the simulation shows stresses which value is higher than the ultimate stress imposed with the TABLES1.

How is it possible? Why the stress-displacement curve does not become flat? Does it have any meaning?

Of course. I attach elso the TABLES1. I imposed the strains between 0 and 1 because shown in the eBook. The real material has maximum total strain equal to 0.3.

So you are using true stress/strain curve & set up for MATS1 looks ok to me.To understand your issue in detail, we want some more information related to your model.(.out/.fem/.h3d file)

If the deformations go past the values defined in the table, the curve is extrapolated linearly (the slope is taken from the last two data points defined). I think Optistruct does not support rupture (failure), but Radioss does.
