Low cycle fatigue/Ratcheting
I am working with abaqus 6.7 software. I wish to simulate uni-axial tension and compression cyclic analysis. My objective is to predict the response of steel subjected to cyclic load and in particular, to predict ratcheting effect. I am also interested to draw S-N curve, stress-strain curve, ratcheting behaviour, etc. from the result of the analysis. I tried to simulate an axi-symmetric model and job submission is successfully completed. But I am not aware of the fact that how the results of analysis can be retrieved to draw the above mentioned curves, please specify how the 'no.of cycle' data can be obtained.
