Dear all allknowing minds,
I am running an analysis with orthotropic material and want to run an analysis taking into account local material failure through element deletion. The failure criterion is that the material may fail by stresses exceeding the capacity in either of the three dimensions/axes (S11, S22, S33, S12, S13 and S23).
Does anyone know how this may be handled in Abaqus? Need help to know where to state the capacities for the stresses of the orthotropic material and which failure function to use.
Hope the question is understandable (maybe somewhat vague?).
Thanks in advance for all help you provide!
