Measuring the length of a deformed part

Experimenter

Hi the community,

 

I am currently working on the model of an electronic detector and I am trying to make mechanical measurements on it.

 

This model consists of a board composed of several very thin layers (micron order) of different materials. This sensor is subjected to static and thermal loads. I managed to get static and thermal results and to combine the two. I now have on solver 101 the deformation combined with the temperature as load case.

 

I try to measure the length of one of the parts of my models when it is subjected to the constraints. Is it possible to do this in a simple way (I have several dozens of measurements to achieve)? How is it possible to achieve this result?

 

Thank you in advance,

Hi,

 

I think the simplest way to do a deformation measurement is explained hereafter:

You start by defining a reference node, from wich all the measurement will be made (the first extremity of the deformed part for instance), and then you simply use the result inquiry to measure the distance of the other extremity.
