I can see layers option for Element stress and Composite Stress. But the values I get for both of them are completely different. Is it possible to know how the element stress and composite stress is calculated in Optistruct and in which coordinate system the results will be. I am looking for ply level stress in a given element. For ex: the extreme ply stress in a given element of 30 plies. I am trying to correlate the hypermesh results to results from my FEA numerical calculation.
Hey Guys! I would like to check the stress in the fiber direction in a composite body. I did not find XX stress, or P1 stress for a given ply in the fiber direction or perpendicular to that. How can I check these stress and strain values? Thanks for your help in advance! Best regards, Tüki
