I simulated a push-out experiment Of a timber-concrete-combined- ceiling system In Abaqus. As a result, a force-displacement curve is required. After the failure, the calculation stops. However, I require further displacement. I added an amplitude to the load. time steps 0, 0.01, 0.02,…, 1, and a force that is linear to that (divided by 100).
So I’ve got the added force and the displacement, but the calculation stops somewhere around step 0.65.
Is there any way to solve this problem?
Thank you for your assistance!

There are two ways to get results of the post-failure behavior:

First, you must do a simple Buckle analysis, then use the “Static, Riks” step to analyze your model and observe the post-failure behavior.

Second, you can use the Explicit solver for the post-behavior analysis from the start.

Refer to this link:

Abaqus Tutorial for Beginners (Abaqus Tutorial for Civil Engineering)

It will help you not only in your current problem but also in your future problems.

Best luck.
