stress at interfacial Guass point
I have encountered a problem to calculate the stress at interfacial Guass point of each hexahedron element. Since the effective stress is needed to decide whether a cohesive element should be inserted when using the extrinsic cohesive element model, the stress at interfacial Guass point of each element is chosen to calculate effective stress. In the calculation process, the stress at Guass point of each hexaderon element can be obtained.Is there anyone who knows how to calculate the interfacial stress accurately? I would appreciate your comments.
