Dynamic failure analysis with ansys

I would like to perform a dynamic structural analysis with ansys. How can I include in the analysis a check after each time step about the status of some elements ( check whether they are broken)  "kill" them if need to and continue the analysis. Thanks, Ran

Starting with a solid mechanics background, I have been recently interested in fluid-structure interactions for applications in biomechanics of soft-tissues; and thought that the iMechanica Journal Club forum would be a good opportunity to share my personal experience and start a discussion on this challenging inter-disciplinary subject.

Concrete tied arch

Respected imehanicians!
                      I am a tackling an important problem about the behavior of concrete tied arch. Each concrete arch rests on two steel I-beams. The steel I-beams are supported at their ends. They are connected at various locations along their length by tie rods. A picture is worth 1000 words  basic figure.pdf.
