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.
