visualizing applied forces

Recommended Posts

I have a rigid body simulation in radioss on which I have applied forces on the slave nodes of the rigid bodies. I wanted to know if there is a way to visualise all this applied forces in the vector plot.(I don't want to view the contact forces). I just want to view the applied forces in the simulation run as vectors.

Regards

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. 

I tried doing this, but it shows the resultant force on the master node, but I want to see them on the slave nodes where I have applied it initially.

Regards

for instance,

The forces are applied on nodes encircled in this figure which are the slave nodes. but the forces are being shown on the master nodes after finding the resultant force as per the method you suggested. can you tell me how I plot the forces by keeping them on the slave nodes.

Hi,

I tried to plot using /ANIM/VECT >FEXT the applied forces , but as I am using USERWINDOWS to apply the forces externally it is not plotting the forces in the vector plot.

Is there any way to plot the forces applied using USERWINDOWS???

the forces applied using hypermesh window seems to get plotted and are visible.

Regards
