If we try to use stress_von_mises results, we are getting different values than Mechanical. Why?
How can we define a conceptual path (not an actual path + result in the tree) in DPF in Mechanical. I want to define the path with start+end points and # of divisions. I then want to map a stress result to those path points and then possibly also do a length-normalized average or integration along that path. Anybody have…
I've run an eigenvalue buckling analysis and would like to create a Python Result that will plot a combined deformation of the mode shapes, with a scale factor.
In a Python Result in Mechanical I want to get stresses in a cylindrical (or any other coordinate system). Is there a built in method to transform stresses?
I have a solid composite model created in ACP. I would like to post-process the stress over the profile length for each layer, so for example along the curved line that passes through these nodes:
How can I get a mesh scoping object in DPF given an APDL component name. Use case is for Mechanical post processing where I have the APDL component name defined in a command snippet, and I want to use those node and/or element values in dpf post processing.
Has anyone been successful in extracting nodal force or elemental nodal force data using dpf? I created a small test model and ensured all data (nodal forces etc.) were written to the results file from workbench. I get the following error when trying to extract any elemental nodal forces:…
For instance, let's imagine that our harmonic analysis contains results for frequency 12Hz and 15Hz. If I want to get a result for 14Hz and 14.5Hz, how can I do it?
(Ansys Mechanical 2022 R2) Is it possible to insert a postobject with the DPF and not use the collector in an ACT extension?
The COG of a body might vary with time as the body deforms and you might be interested in knowing how to compute the time varying COG. This example also highlights on how you can create your own mesh with DPF.
