Accessing deformed and un-deformed parts at a time

Recommended Posts

 Sir,

 

 How can we access a deformed model and its undeformed shape at a time?

 

I have first loaded the model and result file (.odb file) simultaneously and in second step only the model (same .odb file)  with 'overlay' option checked.

I want to measure relative displacement between two nodes in which one node is on the deformed shape and one node is on the undeformed shape.

However it is not letting me select node from another model file which is not current.

Hi,

 

The node on deformed and undeformed model, is it same or different?

 

If it is same, Have you tried using Measures panel to calculate relative displacement?

Yes, the nodes would be the same (BY ID) as the deformed part is derived from the undeformed part (Mesh 'd be same (no adaptivity used))

 

However wile trying relative displacement from measure panel, it enables to select only those nodes which are their in current model file and does not permit to select a node (nothing but the same node-by ID) from another model file.

 

How about if I could have two components (deformed and undeformed) in a single model file?

Actually I'm having a hose which is deforming diametrically.

And I want to show/report how a particular point is undergoing a relative displacement (deforming) with respect to its original position (undeformed).

See there are two model instances...

Soumitra,

 

Go to Deformed panel and select the Show Undeformed shape (in my case it is wireframe)

 

Next, go to Measures panel, select the node and select relative displacement.

 

You just need the results file. Don't overlay another file.
