entype Entity type
options: P, PS, ALL
enid Entity identification number
$\Delta t^{erode}$ Time step size below which elements are eroded
default: not used
$\varepsilon_{geo}^{erode}$ Effective deviatoric geometric strain above which elements are eroded
default: not used
$\varepsilon_v^{erode}$ Volumetric strain above which elements are eroded
default: not used
$\varepsilon_{eff}^{p,erode}$ Effective plastic strain above which elements are eroded
default: not used
Description

This command is used to specify element erosion citeria for one or multiple parts. Note that erosion parameters defined directly in PART have a higher priority.
