Problem in getting angle data in a beam problem

    • Tamoghna

      I am using static structural to simulate a simple beam problem with one end fixed. While using the user defined results to get the nodal angle values I find that the tabular values give me the results in radians even though the selected unit is degrees. The values on the geometry window are correct but those on the table and the graph are not.

      With unit degreesWith radians selected

      You can see the tabular data doesn't change with the units, and they are in agreement with the geometry window values with radians selected. I feel it's kind of weird.

      It must be a bug in the software. I expect one of the ANSYS employees will reproduce it and report it to software development for correction in the next release.

      Hi All,

      This indeed is a bug. The table and graph seem to give the path results always in radians (irrespective of unit system). 

      I have reported this to the development for correction in the future release. 

      Best regards,
