I am trying to collect force information from beam elements representing bolts in a response spectrum analysis. I just need the axial and shear reaction forces of the beam. I would prefer to export the beam forces into a .txt file or .csv file. I wrote a command script that is able to print out the element reaction forces in the local coordinates that goes to the output file. When I try to print out nodal reaction information to a csv, it provides unusual or unformatted values. My two questions are as follow:
- Is there a way to print resultant values in local coordinates rather than global, as I am doing now?
- What is causing my current csv to be unformatted/incorrect?
Screenshot, input command script, current csv output, and ansys output file attached. Thank you in advance for the helpJuly 1, 2021 at 6:37 pmDave LoomanAnsys EmployeeQuestion 1
If you create etable items for the smisc items you can *get those. For example,
*GET,el_num,ELEM,,NUM,MAX ! get element number *get,sm1_val,etab,1 *get,sm1_val,etab,1,elem,el_num ! 1 is column number of the etable
The 2nd format is E13.8 but should be A1
