Model not reacting as elastically as desired
May 3, 2023 3:00 am
Hello, I am working on a dire wolf bone fracture project that uses a physical model as a reference. I am trying to recreate a midpoint fracture scenario in LS PP using the material property 059_SHELL_COMPOSITE_FAILURE_SHELL_MODEL. When I ran the simulation, only the nodes at the midpoint were reacting to the force. After adding DEFORMABLE_TO_RIGID, the nodes would not move at all. I tried different ELFORM types but still had the same problems. I am wondering if anyone would know what I need to add to the model to get the bone to react elastically like it did in the physical sampling. I have attached photos for reference (The bone is receiving compressive force from the top beam.) Thank you in advance!
