Stress direction

Hello evryone,

 

I analysed my non-linear model. The principal load is in Y-direction. I result the stress in the Element direction and I see the graphical result is correct. The principal stress show correctly in Y-direction that correspond to load direction.

 

But When I convert the output stress from Element to Nodal, the stresses direction that result is not correct  (i.e the principal stress are stowed in X direction while I apply load in Y direction).

 

How can I solve this problem ?

 

Thank you for your explanation.
