I am simulating the crimping of a stent in ABAQUS/Standard using a 3D deformable cylinder on which I impose a displacement in order to crimp the stent from an initial diameter of 2.5 mm to a final 1 mm.

After doing the simulation I'm interested in obtaining the radial strength. According to FDA, the radial strength is the pressure at which a stent experiences irrecoverable deformation. So the idea is to plot this pressure (y-axis) with respect to the strain or radial displacement(x-axis).

Do you have any suggestion?
