      Is there a way to show the element coordinate systems, so that I know what direction the bending moments are in?

       Yes. The following steps will display the element coordinate systems: 1.Go to ‘Solution’ 2.Right click >> Insert >> Co-ordinate System >> Elemental Triads 3.Select the geometry in the ‘Scope’ options 4.Evaluate the results. It will display the elemental co-ordinate system for elements of selected geometry.
