      How ANSYS translates the eigenmodes to displacement or stress values? When one change the unit system (say from m to mm) for the modal analysis, the displacement values change to a value that's unrelated between the two unit systems.n

      By default, only mode shapes are calculated. You can request Stress and Strain results to be calculated but note that “stress” results only show the relative distribution of stress in the structure and are not real stress values. You can also choose whether or not to have these results stored for faster result calculations in linked systems.nFor more help please check:n-AniketnHow to access Ansys help linksnGuidelines for Posting on Ansys Learning Forumnn
