Default Explicit dynamics results for initial condition to another explicit dynamics analysis

KOI is on a distinguished road
Hi everyone

I am analyzing an impact between two bodies. The impact causes some plastic strains to the colliding body. I would like to simulate how the plastic strain changes between impacts, so I would need to use the strain state from first analysis as an initial condition for second analysis which is otherwise exactly the same as the first analysis. And I would probably need to do this at least five times consecutively.

I know that results from static structural analysis can be transferred to initial condition of explicit dynamics analysis, but it does not work the same way from explicit analysis to explicit analysis.

Anyone have any ideas how to work around this?

I am using Ansys workbench 17.1.
