How to add plasticity as a material property of 2D members?

You will need to activate the following functionalities in the project settings:

  • Nonlinearity
  • General plasticity

Now you can assign plastic material behavior to the used steel materials in your project. Go to the material library (Libraries -> Materials). The material behavior can be changed to the type isotropic elasto-plastic, Von Mises.

This plastic material behavior is taken into account during the non-linear calculation.
