Different behaviours in tension and compression: can Non-Linear treat them?

Discussion created by Guest on Sep 8, 2006
Hi Francesco, as I stated in COSMOS Companion webcast, using VMS for fatigue was contradictory to my prior work that I never tried that option. Enough people asked that I plan to explore it and update my notes on it.

Are you subscribed to the COSMOS Companion thread above in the News group? I'll probably post any updates there.

By the way, I've done a number of grey iron studies in my former life where I could have used an asymetric nonlinear elastic material model. If you get a chance to try it, let me know what you think.
