Extract strain energy densities from a beam model
I'm having trouble extracting values from my FE job ; my objective is to retrieve strain energy densities from a beam element model. The problematic is the next : for beam elements, you cannot postprocess this kind of information from the output file, BUT they do exist in the result file (.RST), otherwise, we wouldn't be able to visualize it on our model (see image below). How can I retrieve these values from the result file ? Has anyone had the same problem ?
Thanks for your support, and have a pleasant day !
