ANSYS 2022 R2 Student Mechanical APDL – Applied Displacement Reaction Force

      I need to obtain the reaction force due to an applied displacement. The displacement is applied over a number of loadsteps and substeps. The model is a composite coupon that is contrained at one end and subjected to a load on the other end, in order to simulate a simple tension test. 

       

      Do I need to probe to obtain the reaction force? If so, how would I accomplish this?

       

      Is there another way to obtain the reaction force during a specific loadstep and substep?

       

      Thank you!

      Hi,

       

      When you probe the force reaction, the results will be indicated for all the intermediate substeps, by default.

      Ashish,

       

      How do I find the probe command in the drop-down menus of MAPDL? 

       

      Thank you!
