nWhy do you want to count the number of elements with stress above a threshold? It doesn't seem like a useful thing to do, because when you remesh the model with smaller elements, you get a different number of elements above the stress threshold than you got in the first mesh.nWhat is it that you actually care about? A common answer is the maximum stress. Sometimes the volume of material above a stress threshold might be a useful metric in a study to look at different shapes, loads or supports.n
