      Hello everyone,

      I want to show a plot how the load is transferred to each components in an assembly? and also want to show which components takes most of the load by creating the Load Path Image?

      Do we have any option in Ansys to create this Load path?

      Reference Load path Image:

      One option is to create multiple contacts and then evaluate the force reaction at the contact interface.

      Yes, we can evaluate the Force reaction at the interface. But i want to show which interface is taking more load in a single plot. (like the below image). By seeing this plot one can easily visualize, how the load is transferred to different interfaces. Do we have any option / Tricks in ANSYS to get the image like this?

      You can plot vectorial principal stress but again that is not the same as force reaction but will help you in understanding the stress flow.
