I want to visualize in NX12 strain energy density - elemental like in NX103.
But there is no result like that. In NX103 it was possible to plot these results.
See in NX103 >>>
But in NX12 >>>
Where is my mistake? I made the same settings like in NX103.
In my PCH file all of the three parts of strain energy (from NX103 and NX12) are available:
- Strain energy,
- Strain energy density,
- Strain energy percentage.
But in OP2 for "Plot contour" only Strain energy percentage is available. So how can I control it?
Does it depend on Data format? - Only "Abs, Real, Imag" are availabe there.
Who can help? - Best wishes, Michael

Solved! Go to Solution.
That's strange. I don't seem to have any trouble generating Strain Energy contour results in NX12. You might check your f06 file to see if anything strange is happening during the solve.
now I found the reason for "missing Strain Energy Density" in Post Processor Navigator. It's so simple.
The three components of strain energy are not sorted as a unit in the tree of results...
Strain Energy - Elemental and Strain Energy Density - Elemental are placed at Strain and Strain Energy Percentage - Elemental is placed below gluing results at Elastic Strain.
I did only overlook it, that's all. Of course it would be good, if all results are listed collectively. But I've found it.
EDIT: As I've seen now, the Strain Energy Percentage - Elemental is completely new in "Plot Contour". So it's an enhancement (with teething troubles a little bit?)!
Best wishes, Michael.
