pressure load and abaqus viewer

pressure load and abaqus viewer

Hi everybody,
I need to know if it is possibile to show pressure loads applied on solid or shell element once the run is completed. I mean, I wrote the input file directly through a text editor. The model is based on solid element (C3D8) and I've applied a pressure load on the faces of some element. I need to verify that the pressure load direction is correct. Is it possibile to show pressure load direction (as for example I can do with imposed displacement) with abaqus viewer, opnening the odb file once the analyses is finished? Thanks

RE: pressure load and abaqus viewer

Pressures are always normal to the face of course so you know the direction. I tend to look at the stress in that particular direction to confirm I've applied the loads correctly. So if the pressure is in the X drection then plot Sxx. The value you input should be the value contoured at that surface.


RE: pressure load and abaqus viewer

V6.6EF allows this
