adams flex

is it possible to show the stresses and strains that adams view calculate for a flexible body?
can some one help me?

RE: adams flex

I doubt it. A flex model is a reduced subset of the stiffness matrix. As suc there is no real structure inside it.

What you could do is export the displacement or force time histories and apply them to your original FEA model.

RE: adams flex

The Adams/Durability plug-in can compute the strains and stresses by combining the modal coordinates' time-histories and the modal stress shapes. Third-party durability codes can perform the same computation too.
