Bending Moment plots

    • Ted Janzen

      I have a model of a large concrete pad supported by piles, modeled in Ansys Workbench 2019 R3.   Is it possible to create a contour plot of the bending moments in the concrete pad?

      Hi Ted, 

      You can plot the bending moment contour by using the options under beam results called total bending moment, not super sure whether this option is available in 2019R3. You will need to define the Path by selecting the edge along which the result is to be obtained.

      Note:- The beam results can only be scoped to line/beam bodies. 

      You can also another option under Beam results called Shear-Moment Diagram.

      For more information on this please refer to the following links:
