How to get hoop strain (circumferential strain) in ANSYS Workbench !

      Hi everyone,

      I am using Ansys Workbench to simulate deformation of a tube. How can I obtain hoop strain (circumferential strain)? Thank you so much !

      Insert a new Coordinate System with the origin at the center of the tube and the Z axis along the length of the tube. Change this to a Cylindrical system. The hoop strain will be the Normal Strain for the Y axis when using this new cylindrical coordinate system.
