      Hello all,

      I am attempting to create a user defined result to calculate the safety factor of my beam-modeled chassis. I have done the following:

      1. Successfully solved my model
      2. Evaluated the Maximum Combined Stress for my model
      3. Found the code for Maximum Combined Stress (BEANMAX_COMBINED) in the solution worksheet
      4. I found the yield strength of material I am using, which is 250 MPa.
      5. I created a user defined result that with the following parameters:
