Starting from the attached topic, I was able to find a way to visualize my load flow/force flow by creating an expression "Vector from Scalar". Browsing through several publications I found the neccessary Tensor-Elements to combine my force in x-,y- and z-direction. fx = [SigmaXX, TauXY, TauXZ] fy = [TauYX, SigmaYY, TauYZ] fz = [TauZX, TauZY, SigmaZZ] Following the above my expression for fx looks like this: VectorFromScalar(T1.C1, T1.C4, T1.C6) T1.C1 is Table Component XX T1.C4 is Table Component XY T1.C6 is Table Component ZX All three chosen from "Table: Element Stresses (2D & 3D)" Now I need to verify that this is actually what I want^^ So please let me know what you would interpret from this visualization. To get more insight I'll tell you what I am heading for: The Idea is to analyze complex structures referring to the flow/flux of force. This can be very helpful in finding working surface pairs or their connecting channel and support structures within non-obvious structures. Thank you for your help! I am happy for anykind of answer!!
