I am trying to model concrete in ANSYS LS-DYNA and am having difficulty getting *MAT_159 (*MAT_CSCM) to work properly. I know that this model is not supported by ANSYS, but I need to use it and require assistance. What should I do?

LSTC suggested checking out the website: <a target=_blank href="http://www.tfhrc.gov/safety/pubs/05063/index.htm">http://www.tfhrc.gov/safety/pubs/05063/index.htm</a>http://www.tfhrc.gov/safety/pubs/05063/index.htm

If that does not help, you can either pay for additional technical support through LSTC, or go directly to the creator and instructor of their Geomaterial Modeling course, Dr. Len Schwer. Dr. Schwer's website is located at: <a target=_blank href="http://www.sonic.net/lschwer/SECS/index.htm">http://www.sonic.net/lschwer/SECS/index.htm</a>http://www.sonic.net/lschwer/SECS/index.htm He will provide services for a consulting fee. Please contact him at len@schwer.net for his rates. We believe he will sell anyone a copy of his Geomaterial Modeling course notes and reimburse the price if the buyer later attends the course. A course schedule is available at <a target=_blank href="http://www.lstc.com">http://www.lstc.com</a>http://www.lstc.com

LSTC Technical Support also provided the following sample data for another
concrete material model, namely *MAT_CONCRETE_DAMAGE_REL3 :
