Load-Displacement curves with XFEM in Abaqus?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,
I am working with abaqus by using XFEM.
I am modelling a Single Lap Joint and I have simulated the crack propagation within the adhesive. Nonetheless, I also want to extract the Load-Displacement curves from my simulation model. The thing is, wen I plot them, I get extremelly high values, which are not correct as well as the curve does not show that a crack has been initiated and propagated by having a decrease in the load.
If someone has been through the same problem as I, or has the knowledge of simulating XFEM in Abaqus, please help me!
Thank you in advance :)
