Training: multiPlas for ANSYS

multiPlas for ANSYS provides the essential material models for FE-calculations in the fields of civil engineering, geomechanics as well as structural mechanics. The seminar will explain the functionality of models for masonry, ceramics, soil, rock, sand, concrete, reinforced concrete, steel, wood, mortar and stone.

The material models are based on elasto-plastic flow criterion with associated and non-associated flow rules. For FEM calculations in ANSYS, multiPlas has an efficient and robust algorithm for the proceeding of single and multi surface plasticity. Special feature of the material models is the interconnection of  which can be combined in numerous ways by the user.
