I have read the user guide about how to use the combination of symmetry and anti symmetry result to simulate load on only half of a structure. Please read article from the link below
However it only shows how to get the displacement result but it does not show how to manipulate the stress result. Does anyone how to do it?
Thank you very much
Solved! Go to Solution.
In a linear solution sequence, this linear combination of results is valid for all results types. Simply add additional output requests under the SUBCOM case control. I.e. to include stresses and strains, simply use the following:
$ TITLE = SYMMETRIC AND ANTISYMMETRIC SUBCASE 1 LABEL = SYMMETRIC CONSTRAINTS - Y LOAD SPC = 1 LOAD = 2 $ SUBCASE 2 LABEL = ANTISYMMETRIC CONSTRAINTS - Y LOAD SPC = 2 LOAD = 2 $ SUBCOM 3 LABEL = LEFT SIDE OF MODEL - Y LOAD SUBSEQ 1.0, 1.0 DISP = ALL STRESS = ALL STRAIN = ALL $ SUBCOM 4 LABEL = RIGHT SIDE OF MODEL - Y LOAD SUBSEQ 1.0, -1.0 DISP = ALL STRESS = ALL STRAIN = ALL $
