I am working on ROPS analysis ( Large deformation analysis). I have couple of questions related to analysis.
1. Since the 2D shell does not support large deformation analysis with elastic-plastic material properties, I am meshing the structure with Solid elements. I am not able to map meshed it because of complex joints in model, so my first question is will I have a lot of convergence issue if i model with Solid Tet elements. If Yes, what are the precautions i need to take if i want to continue with Tet mesh?
2. What is the best way to run sequential analysis, as the load sequence change in ROPS. IS there any option like model change as used in Abaqus.
3. How to run restart analysis?
I am new to Creo simulate and trying to replicate analysis which was done in Abaqus before, so need some information for the same.
