How can I extract the reaction forces at the supports?
February 16, 2018 at 7:39 pmBrian BuenoAnsys EmployeeGabriel Click the Create Quick Calculation button indicated by the red arrow, then click "More" in the first small dialog box that appears. This opens the full control panel for calculations. 1. Specify the result you want to show 2. Choose the direction component for the force, or SUM to use X, Y, and Z 3. Choose which value you want to display (i.e. max, min, mean, etc) 4. Specify the entity to place the calculator on. For a fixed support you'd most likely want to use Face 5. Click Select 6. Click the desired face on the model

The reported value is quite confusing, I was expecting to see the full reaction not just the max force at one single point. My model is quite simple a block with a 1000N force along the X direction at the top and a fixed support at the bottom. I would like to evaluate the total reaction at the bottom support. I would expect a value of 1000N. I've tried different option like SUM, max, Integral, but the result does not make sense. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks again. Regards Gabriel
