Elemental Non Linear Strain Results

Dear all,

 

I would recovery elemental strain on shell element in Autodesk Nastran. How can I obtain it?

With  output vector 712 shell max von mises top /bottom, I can recovery nodal strain. 

Is possibile to create an elemental strain output vector?

 

Regards

Stefano

Hi Stefano,

 

In Femap to view elemental results press goto View->View Select-Deformed and Contour Data->Contour Options-> Elemental. 

 

You can also use the post-processing toolbox, expand the contour button and change the type property to elemental.

 

I hope this helps.

The problem is that nastran create only nodal results instead elemental
results. I solved this problem updated nastran and modify the output
request. In this way I obtain nodal and elemental strain results.

Thanks for your support
