How to get the rotational velocity of one node in the global coordinate system?

      Hi,everyone. I'm trying to simulate a dynamic model using the Beam188 element.


      What I encountered is that in Post1 proccesser(the General processer), how to get the rotational velocity of one node in the global coordinate system, instead of the nodal coordinate system?

      Try using RSYS,0 before the prnsol,omg command.

      thank you for your reply.


      The command "prnsol" is used to print the result in ANSYS.


      But how to output the  rotational velocity of one node in Post1 proccesser, into a file such as .csv?

      If you are not sure ,change Active CS from local to Global using CSYS command.


      Then list the nodal data results using prnsol command.


      Save the file in .lis format.


      Open the .lis file in Excel using delimiter.

      Thanks,sathya.


      Changing the output CS to the global one does work out. 


      Since there might be lots of steps in the model, how to output the nodal rotational velocity in every loadstep in Post1?


      Thankyou.
