Algorithm for calculating Total deformation, equivalent stress, strain energy

    • Sumit Paul


      Could anyone please post some relevant materials/ANSYS resources which discuss the algorithm of ANSYS for calculating Total deformation, equivalent stress, and strain energy in static structural models? Also, could anyone please post any resources which explains ANSYS algorithm for getting converged solution?

      You should refer to the MAPDL Help,  Chapter 2 of the MAPDL Theory Reference explains how the deformation/stresses/strains are calculated.  Chapter 8 of the MAPDL Structural Analysis Guide and Chapter 14 of the MAPDL Theory Referebce discuss non-linear analysis.
