Deformed Shape

Post by wordblue » 11 Dec 2009, 10:39

HI!

Recently, I am trying to use this Elmer.
When I solved the linear elastic problems, I could not view the deformed shape of structures by ElmerPost.
I don't think this postprocessor doesn't have this function, so I am asking how I can do.

Sincerely,
Jungmin Park.

if you have a single solution loaded into Elmerpost you can write to
Elmerpost main windows command line:

math n=nodes
math nodes=n+scale*Displacement; display

with 'scale' of your choice.

If you have several timesteps loaded into Elmerpost do
math n = nodes
math nodes=n+scale*Displacement(0:2,time(n)); display
with timestep n=0,1,...

You can also animate the solution (sinusoidally) using the "Display -> Mode Display"
panel from the menus. Hit the main windows "Freeze Scaling" button before using this
though.

Regards, Juha
