Nodal displacement using in ANSYS Mechanical
Hi I am performing a static structural analysis on a simple curved beam. I'm applying a Load on a specific node which is on the tip of the beam. The load I am applying is using APDL command language which is given below. I am trying to retrieve the displacement of this node for all the load steps and the corresponding load steps also in a output text file or anywhere explicitly as result.
/SOLU ! Enter the SOLUTION processor
ANTYPE,STATIC ! Static (steady-state) analysis
KBC,0 ! Apply load in steps, not ramp
SNODE=745 ! Start node index in blade tip
NSEL,S,,,SNODE ! Select nodes
F,ALL,FY,-10. ! Force in y-direction
OUTRES,NSOL,1 ! Write node solutions to the result file
OUTRES,NLOAD,1 ! Write forces to the result file
NSUBST,10 ! Number of substeps for force
I believe this should be straight forward and I'm making it quite complicated. The APDL command writes it into the result file but I want it in a text file.
I have no prior ANSYS experience, this is the first time working with ANSYS so all the help would be greatly appreciated.
