Failure Index
Use a failure index measure to determine whether a material has failed because of excessive stress levels, which might be caused by an applied load or an enforced displacement constraint.
Specify information for the following items that appear on the Measure Definition dialog box after you select Failure Index as the quantity:
Spatial Evaluation—Select a spatial evaluation method for your quantity from this option menu.
Time/Frequency Eval—Activate the optional Dynamic Evaluation menu, which you use to select a time or frequency evaluation method.
Return to Quantity for Measure Definition.
