Hi all.

I am using C3D8R elements in an static-riks alalysis in Abaqus with the PNM model where the material softens after yielding like here:

Should there be any problems when running this type of materials with solid elements? I get a error when running the job:

Error in job Job-1: 87 elements have been defined with zero hour glass stiffness. You may use *hourglass stiffness or change the element type. The elements have been identified in element set ErrElemZeroHourGlassStiffness.

No problem. Just active Enhanced Hourglass Control!
