Failure Index Results Quantity
Creo Simulate supports this quantity for Structure analyses on models where you defined a failure criterion for at least one of the materials. The Failure Index quantity is not available in FEM mode.
Use Failure Index to determine whether a material has failed under given loading conditions. If the failure index is:
less than 1—the material has not failed
equal to or greater than 1—the material has failed
When reviewing failure index results, be sure to consider the failure modes of the material.
If you select Failure Index from the Quantity drop-down list and Graph as your display type, Creo Simulate adds the Graph Location selection to the Quantity tab. Use the associated selector arrow to display your model and pick the geometric entity you want to use in your results display.
