      As mentioned previously in https://forum.ansys.com/discussion/comment/94222#Comment_94222.

      “nlplwk” represents the result of plastic work divided by volume. But when I export the result file, see fig. 1.

      Then, I try to transfer the worbench project to APDL. Two result items are confusing, which is plastic strian energy and plastic work, please see below.n

      Hi, everyone As the question in title, "nl, plwk" and "send, plastic", what's the difference of this two results .If you could answer this question, it will be nice!https://forum.ansys.com/discussion/21999/plastic-work-density-and-strain-ennergy-density

      Also, I want to ask that If anyone have faced the situation, in which some specific result can't be extracted, showingThe requested element solution data is not available. The PRES command  is ignored.' , and other result items can be read. I entered the order, outres,all,all.nBest wishes!n

      Hi - the nodal value will take into account the element volume apportioned to the node for all elements the node is attached to. If you prefer to work with element data then change the 'Display Option' to Element Mean. This will give you a single value per element. nTraditionally when doing the Darveaux fatigue calculation we would have used a post-processing commands object and used a ETABLE [element table] to gather send,plastic.nMike n
