How to capture radius of curvature or data to input into excel?

      I am performing a bulge test on a rectangular thin film (8mm x 32mm x 0.13mm) I need to capture the radius of curvature in the width (8mm) direction.

      I tried splitting the geometry into two having two rectangles measuring 8mm x 16mm and then bonding them together. This runs however I am unsure how to get the coordinates of the curve

      Hi there are two ways in my view: first you could write a macro command that is the difficult one, and the other that is much easier is to export deformation results for a cross section like the image you posted, then calculating the curvature of the points in matlab. you may find the code by a simple web browsing.

      How would I got about attaining the data for the section view, I understand I can simply add in a section view but as for data I am unsure.
      Thanks

      Hello, extracting the results need a macro code in ansys that is beyond the scope of our chat. sorry, if you need help in writing macro i can help. thank you.
