Creo Simulate Element Birth and Death Capabilities
Hello everyone, does anyone know whether creo simulate 3.0 has any type of element birth and death mesh capabilities? I know other fea software can limit a part's mesh to a stiffness of nearly 0 as time moves through a non-linear analysis. This would be really helpful in simulating a weld as the weld pool only exists as a function of time.
Any insight into Creo's capabilities would be appreciated!

If I recall correctly, you can defined a function for the Young's Modulus that is dependent on temperature. In you material properties definition box, right-click on the property and see if the pop-up menu has 'function' in it.
