thickness variation

    • irfan.sc19b048

      Dear sir, i am doing simulation of circular plate which is clamped at its boundary. After that i give pressure load to the plate. i want to find the thickness of plate after deformation of plate along its diameter.

      Hello, what element type are you using, solid, shell, or thick shell? If you use solids or tshells you can determine the plate thickness by recording the displacement of nodes at the top and bottom surface through *DATABASE_NODOUT. Alternatively, Element Tools > Measure can be used to measure distance between two nodes and to also plot its time history.
