When performing a plastic calculation displays, there are stresses displayed, exceeding the yield criterion. Have I done anything wrong?

Answer

You are working in your file with plastic material behavior and have entered the yield criterion. Therefore, the stress in your model cannot be higher as the material starts to plastify when exceeding the stress. RF-STEEL provides an option to set the stresses to "constant in elements". For this, please click [Details] and [Options].
