Shear stress size in tensor plot

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just want to show the shear stress of specific elements in a tensor plot. For the sake of better visualisation I want these arrows to be bigger than the corresponding elements. 

I can create the tensor plot for shear stress in the XY plane without a problem. The problem is I can't seem to scale the shear stress since it seems to be limited to the element size. Even if I use tcl and the "poITensorCtrl SetShearComponentScale " command, I can only use values between 0 and 1. Is it possible to circumvent this problem?

 

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

 

Did you test this? Because that is exactly what I tried before and it didn't work then. Doesn't work now either.

In your example you selected Principal Stresses. I want to use the shear stress. So the tensor format needs to be changed and only XY (for example) should be ticked.

 

Thank you

How about these settings, instead of arrows try CrowsFoot. I will check why the arrows are not displayed.
