I have got a solution but I can't import the results file. I have a number of different files but I can't find a way of bringing them back into the work module (static structural module)

If you could please advise I would really appreciate it, thanks!

    You can use “Read results file” in Mechanical to import the result data. You have to click on the “solution” in tree, and in the context tool bar at the top, you will have options to “read results file”.

    Usually the result file is named file.rst for a static structural analysis.

    If you see file0.rst, file1.rst etc, you have used distributed solution. If this is the case, you will have to combine the result file using rescombine command in Mechanical APDL application

    Hi, thanks for your reply.

    I'm not very familiar with mechanical APDL, and haven't had much luck playing around with it trying to import my results. Where can I find that command/ how can I compile the results in the in the gui?

    Thanks for your help!
