The beam is CBEAM which is timoshenko beam. Manual is not clear about that.the STRESS card control outpot but it has no effect on 1d element. I can plot element forces not stresses.While ANSYS plot von misses stress even for beams I wonder why hyperworks can't do such simple thing.
Hi everybody I'm using radioss (bulk format) to do some Beam/shell static analysis. I've tried to plot cbar/cbeam stresses in the hyperview but it seem that for 1D elements it only shows stresses due to axial forces not bending moments. how can I plot contours for bending stresses? I'm using hyperworks 11
