Mapdl.rate(option='', **kwargs)

Specifies whether the effect of creep strain rate will be used in the

APDL Command: RATE solution of a load step.



Activates implicit creep analysis.

0 or OFF - No implicit creep analysis. This option is the default.

1 or ON - Perform implicit creep analysis.


Set Option = 1 (or ON) to perform an implicit creep analysis (TB,CREEP with TBOPT : 1). For viscoplasticity/creep analysis, Option specifies whether or not to include the creep calculation in the solution of a load step. If Option = 1 (or ON), ANSYS performs the creep calculation. Set an appropriate time for solving the load step via a TIME,TIME command.
