How can I get displacements, stresses and plastic strains at the integration points for a shell mode

      Displacements are not available at integration points as a list. We display "pseudo" displacements at the expanded element shape plot (see /ESHAPE). 1. At the top/bot/mid locations integration points are in the RST file and can be accessed through regular post-processing commands (see OUTRES command, KEYOPT(8)). 2. Element results can be output at all integration points in the printout (OUTPR,ESOL command). Please note that the element results may be extrapolated from in-plane integration locations to nodal locations before being stored into RST file. Use the ERESX command if you want the original integration point results.
