zone creep command


zone creep keyword

Primary keywords:

active    list    time-total

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

Set the creep process on for zones. This setting is on by default when the model configure creep command is given. Generally this setting is unnecessary and is inherent in to the model configure creep setting. Specify active off to suppress the creep calculation for zones.


Display creep calculation-mode information.

time-total f

Specify 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.
