PostForum: XANSYS   Posted: Mon Jul 27, 2015 4:24 pm   Subject: ASME BPVC Ratcheting Analysis
Hello,
We have been using the elastic-plastic methods in the ASME pressure vessel code (Section VIII, Div 2) and things were going swimmingly until we came to the ratcheting. The code requires you ru ...

I think you want SURF154 with KEYOPT(11) set to 1 and the load applied to
face 5 of the element.

A good idea; I would add that if you use the MPC option (KEYOPT(2)=2) it's
like you created constraint equations without the headache or the small
displacement limitation.

If you are comparing stresses, you could be having trouble because Workbench

Have you set the Pinball equal to your shell thickness? It could be that
your default pinball is too small, and you aren't connecting to enough
