Criteria view always shows the maximum element stress even if average stress option is chosen in Contour options. Criteria view is the function in FEMAP where the stress is displayed right on the element. Is there a way to display average stress number on element in criteria view. This is to get a screenshot for report.
Criteria view displays the element centroid stress without averaging as shown below showing the results of a comparison of the Contour values using element centroid without nodal averaging and the Criteria plot showing identical results.
If you want to display a criteria using the nodal averaged values, use the Model > Output > Process command to create new Output Vectors as shown below and use those Output Vectors for the Criteria plot.
