3DEC 9: Plain concrete model in structural analysis - damage factors and characteristic length

Hi everbody!

Is it possible to access damage factor D (or Dc, Dt) via Fish command, such as “block.zone.state ()” or something similar. And, does anybody have suggestion about characteristic lengths (lc or ld) if “block zone generate-new” and “block zone nodal-mixed-discretization” are used. Of course, some FEM rules exist, but are they valid for the NMD strategy?



You can use block.zone.prop(zp,‘damage-compression’) or block.zone.prop(zp,‘damage-compression’) etc. See the property names here.

Maybe @cheng can comment on the other part of the question?
