zone creep command


zone creep keyword

Primary keywords:

active    list    time-total

This command sets parameters for a time-dependent creep material analysis (only available with the creep model option – see Section 1 in Creep Material Models). These parameters apply to zones only, other model elements may have different values.

active b

The creep process is on for zones, by default, when the model configure creep command is given. Specify active off to suppress the creep calculation for zones. Generally this command is unnecessary and is slaved to the zone creep active setting.


Display creep calculation-mode information.

time-total f

Specifies the accumulated zone creep time, defined as the sum of all the timesteps over which zone creep is active. Once set, creep time will continue to accumulate with subsequent cycles.
