Independent and Dependent Identity in Charting

Builder

Hello Everyone,

 

I plotted the graph between nonlinear solid von mises stress vs nonlinear solid von mises strain. So I selected vector vs vector option and choose two point independent and Dependent Identity out of my whole model ( around 85000 element). And plot the graph.

 

Could somone please tell me does it mean? Does it mean they have taken all the stress contour zone between those value or something different.

 

Attached please find the pic of the model.

No interpolation between the two points is done. Your plot simply shows stress plotted against strain for two independent locations for each output step selected. In a standard stress vs strain plot you would likely want to select the same location for both output quantities.

I want to make stress vs strain graph for the whole model. Could you please tell me how to make when model consume large number of node and shape is highly chaotic.
