In this tutorial we will go through the third step. We will review our results.

  1. Step 1:

    Goto General Postproc >> Plot Results >> Deformed Shape.

  2. Step 2:

    Select Def + undeformed. Click OK.

  3. Step 3:

    We have deformation plot. Now goto Plot Results >> Contour plot >> Nodal Solu.

  4. Step 4:

    Select DOF Solution >> Displacement vector sum and click OK.

  5. Step 5:

    Now we have displacement plot.

  6. Step 6:

    Again goto Nodal Solu and select von mises stress under stress. Click OK.

  7. Step 7:

    We have von-Mises plot.

  8. Step 8:

    Click PlotCtrls and then select Capture image.

  9. Step 9:

    Now the result image will be in seperate image.

  10. Step 10:

    Again PlotCtrls Menu and select Numbering.

  11. Step 11:

    Check KP, Line and Element numbers & click OK.

  12. Step 12:

    Now we have the numbering for element.

  13. Step 13:

    Again goto PlotCtrls >> Animate >> Deformed shape.

  14. Step 14:

    Select Def + undeformed and click OK.

  15. Step 15:

    The animation will start. Click Close.

  16. Step 16:

    Goto PlotCtrls Menu and then Animate >> Save Animation in case you want to save the animation.

  17. Step 17:

    Goto General Postproc >> Plot results >> Vector plot >> Predefined.

  18. Step 18:

    Keep it to DOF solution and click OK.

  19. Step 19:

    We have the vector plot.

  20. Step 20:

    Finally we have solved the problem in APDL.
