,nSo what I glean from this graph is say we put a load like a torsion at one end of the chassis (or even a force couple from the tire loads, etc., and we wish to understand what regions of the model contribute to the overall rotation (torsional stiffness). It can help identify areas where the torsional stiffness can be increased, etc.nWhat you can do is put in a remote point at multiple locations along the length of the chassis (one for each data point you wish. Think of like sectioning up your model along the length. You won't actually section. Scope the remote point to nodes, vertices, or small lines/edges (if you have them). that lie on the section plane. Make their behavior deformable. The coordinates of the remote point (the red label you see in graphics window) is not critical for rotation, but would be for translation. So it is up to you where you place that point spatially within the plane. Then you can insert a result probe to report the rotation in the desired rotation direction. It can also report the total translation which would include the actual translation plus the rotations * length to the remote point. Seems like in this graph 10 to 12 might be sufficient. Be sure to make deformable as rigid will stiffen the chassis, but deformable will not and give you this insight. You then just need to take the value into excel and create such graph.nBest of lucknSeann
