Plate midsurface Von Mises stress

Experimenter
Experimenter

Hello there,

 

I am here asking for help regarding plate Von Mises stress. After the analysis of one model which include plate eleemens, I want to check the Von Mises stress in the midsurface  of the plate. But I can't find such option in " View select-->Deformed and Contour Data-->contour option of the Output Vectors partition in Select Postprocessing Date dialoge box ". Anyone knows if Femap can output the Von Mises stress in plate midsurface or not? And how can I find it.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Regards!

Dear Wang,

I understand you run FEMAP with NX Nastran solver. If this is the case then NX Nastran do not compute explicitely the stress in the midsurface, but the normal, shear, principal & vonMises stress, take a look to the NX Nastran Users Guide > Element Library:

But Femap supplies two Custom Tools - API's that will perform this function:

  • ASME_Mid_Membrane_and_Stress_Intensity, and
  • Calculate Mid Plate Stresses


Take a look to the associated text documents with information about the above API's that are incluided in the FEMAP \API installation directory, this is self-explanatory.

To run the API's in Femap go to "Customer Tools >  Post Processing".

 

Best regards,

Blas.
