Thank you for all previous help!  The Cap Model ran and the stress distributions make sense.  Now, I have a couple more questions.  Is there a way to get the Young's modulus and poisson's ratio for the whole compact as well as the distribution. And also, is there a way to plot density vs. compact time?

Thanks in advance,


RE: More Drucker Prager Help !

I do not know if this is what you really want but...
You can request relative density (RD) to be output, in
Step module ->Field Output Request. Then you can plot
and use the information in the same manner you can do it with any other field (e.g., Mises)

The question on Young's modulus and Poisson's ratio is not that clear for me. However, assuming your aforementioned material properties depends on other fields, for example temperature an way obtain fields (for further plotting tasks), you can use:
Visualization->Tools->Create Field Output
Thus, for example if you have

Material_Property = f( Field(x,y,z;time) ) ,

where f(...) is a known function and Field(x,y,z;time) is a part of the solution then using "Create Field Output" tool you can obtain a new field representing the spatial distribution of the material property for a given frame instance.

Also, you can use ABAQUS Scripting  Interface to program more automatic tasks.
