How to print stress in cylindrical CS?

How to print stress in cylindrical CS?

With command "*EL PRINT, ELSET=ElementsSet, POSITION=NODES" , I can print stresses for each node of ElementSet in dat-file and such stresses are in Global (Cortesian) CS. How to print stresses in Local (Cylindrical) CS? Thx

RE: How to print stress in cylindrical CS?

In postprocessing with A/CAE do this:

- create a cylindrical CSYS
- display the result variable you want to use
- transform the result into the new CSYS
- hide the regions you don't need
- write out a report of field data

Thank you for your reply.
Yes, it will work manually, but my question was how to get this in dat-file.

RE: How to print stress in cylindrical CS?

I think it is not possible. When looking into the Keyword Reference Manual I can's see an option to do that with *El Print.
