Hello everyone, i just want to know how to see the shear stress in tau_xy and tau_xz direction. I used optistructe as my solver. I only see "max shear" as an option but the result didnt expect as it shoud. the modell is loaded with a lateral force and has a fixed joint.
I have a tetra mesh which is more or less spherical and I would like to quantify the shear stress in the tetra elements. Is there a way to calculate the forces tangentially to the surface of the mesh (when the surfaces of the individual elements are not parallel to the surface of the mesh, like it is the case in a tetra mesh)? Is it for example possible to establish some kind of spherical coodinate system in the center of my mesh and calculate the stress perpendicular to an axis that points into the center of that coordinate system?
Hi, I have created 1D beam (using PBeam element) and preform torsional analysis (using optistruct) by applying fixed support at one end and moment (torque) at other end. When i visualize the results in hyperview, it does not show me the shear stresses. Can anyone help me regarding how to get the shear stresses in 1D beam torsional analysis? Regards, Shahzaib Ilyas
