I'm an ansys user currently evaluating Cosmos Works Nonlinear capabilities. Usually when testing out nonlinear software, my first benchmark test is to model a dogbone test coupon and assign it the material properties (stress-strain) curve and simulate a tensile test.

I've attempted this but can't figure out why the results don't show "necking" phenomenon of the test coupon.

Anyone have similar experience with this type of simulation.
