cquad4 nonlinear stress output.


I have a model which I needed to convert to a nonlinear analysis to incprporate gap
elements.
The model runs O.K., but I don't get the same element stress output as for the linear
static analysis. How can I calculate the principal stresses to enable a direct comparison
with the linear analysis?
Thanks in advance,
Carlton.
