Extract stress in shell midplane ANSYS APDL

    • Christian Wiibroe Lund


      I am using SHELL281 to model a sandwich composit with an circular insert in the center. I am looking to extract he YZ shear stress through the center of the sandwich. I've turned ont KEYOPT(8)=2 and written SHELL,MID before making the path as seen in the picture. Yet it seems like the model still averages the top and buttom stresses when the results are extracted.

      Can anyone tell me if i am missing something important.

      Thanks in advance!

      You mentioned composites. Did you also use the LAYER command to point to a particular layer for which you want the results?
