For my project, I’m using ABAQUS to model an L-shaped shear wall. On the top surface of my specimen, I applied a cyclic loading. “Base shear vs drift data” has been extracted (and obtained a backbone envelope curve from the hysteresis). Aside from this load-deflection curve, I’d like to know when and where the first cracks and crushing of concrete occur. And the same for the yielding of rebars.┬áIs there anyone who can assist me with this?

Hello,

First, you need to know what your damage initiation criterion is? After completing your job, select the damage initiation criterion from the Field Output dialog box. Check the frames and legend. Find out when the first point value is greater than one. You can read the time from the step time. To find the point location, select the Contour from the options menu, then go to the Limits tab, and toggle on the Show location to observe the location of the point.
