Exercise 12 Result Evaluation and Post-processing

2-1

Exercise 12a PostProcessing with Deformed Contour Plots


In this exercise, you will become familiar with
Specifying Deformed and Contour Styles. Access advanced Post Processing options, including the use of the

View Options dialog box, and the Post toolbar. Practice using the View, Advanced Post commands.

Exercise 12a PostProcessing with Deformed Contour Plots


1. Open the file fanpost.mod.
a) Save the model in your exercises folder using the File, Save As

command.
2. Select the PostProcessing Data to Deform and Contour, and Specify

the Method Used to Contour the Results.


a) With the View, Select command (or F5), select Deform, and Contour for

the Deformed and Contour Styles. b) Set the Output Set to 1..Distributed Pressure Load c) Press the Deformed and Contour Data button to bring up the Select Post Processing Data dialog box. d) The results from the analysis of a model are organized into output vectors that can be used as the data for the various displays. Select Total Translation for the deformation display, and the Solid Von Mises Stress for the contour display.

Exercise 12a PostProcessing with Deformed Contour Plots


3. In the Select Post Processing Data

dialog box, press the Contour Options button to modify the type of averaging performed on the data to be contoured. With the Contour Type set to Nodal, set Data Conversion to Max Value so that Femap will use the maximum corner value at each of the nodes.
4. Press OK in all forms to display the

contoured and deformed model.


Note: You can use the difference in Maximum and Average results to make a quick estimate of the fidelity of the model. If there is a large difference between these two contours, especially at locations that do not have sharp corners or breaks in the model. Your model may require a finer mesh. More information about the data conversion Femap uses can be found in the Femap Commands documentation.

Exercise 12a PostProcessing with Deformed Contour Plots


5. Publish two (2) deformed contoured

plots of the Solid Von Mises Stress, one using Average data and the other using Max data conversions
a) Display the Solid Von Mises Stress for

the Contour, with the Average type of data conversion, and the Total Translation for the deformation.
b) To place a picture of the plot in the

Windows Clipboard, select the File, Picture, Copy command.


c) Open Microsoft Word and choose Edit,

Paste
d) Repeat steps 5b and 5c for the plot

using Max corner data conversion.

Exercise 12a PostProcessing with Deformed Contour Plots


6. Set your PostProcessing options so that the

Undeformed model and the Filled Edges of elements are not displayed
a) Select the View, Options command (Ctrl+O) b) In the View Options dialog box, set the

Category to Post-Processing.
c) Select the Undeformed Model option, and

uncheck Draw Entity. Only the deformed model will be shown.


d) Now select Category, Tools and View Style. e) Select Filled Edges, and uncheck Draw Entity.

Note: The standard Post toolbar has the option to toggle the display off the Undeformed model under the Post Options pulldown icon. Filled Edges display can be toggled on and off under the View Style pulldown icon in the standard View toolbar.

Exercise 12b PostProcessing with XY Plots


1. Open the model platepost.mod and save it in
your training folder

Make an XY Plot of the Plate Top VonMises Stresses.


a) View, Select (F5), select

XY vs. Position, and then press XY data. b) Choose NX/Nastran Case 1 as the Output Set, and Plate Top VonMises Stress as the Output Vector.
