How to write maximum results for all modes in a modal analysis (ANSYS 18.1 Mechanical APDL)

How to write maximum results for all modes in a modal analysis (ANSYS 18.1 Mechanical APDL)

How to write maximum results for all modes in a modal analysis (ANSYS 18.1 Mechanical APDL)


I am doing a modal analysis on ANSYS Mechanical 18.1, as part of an R&D project. I am collecting 20 eigenvalues. How can I write the maximum value of displacement vector sum, and the maximum value of Von Mises Stress for ALL modes in a text file? I want the global maximum, considering all nodes. Alternatively, how can I display these results on screen? I know this can be done with the *get command, but I don't know how can I collect results for all modes, as I only have experience in static analysis.

I am pretty sure this can be done, either by APDL code, of by the GUI, or even both.

Thanks in advance,

White Paper - Using Virtualization for IVI and AUTOSAR Consolidation on an ECU
Current approaches used to tackle the complexities of a vehicle’s electrical and electronics (E/E) architecture are both cost prohibitive and lacking in performance. Utilizing virtualization in automotive software architecture provides a better approach. This can be achieved by encapsulating different heterogeneous automotive platforms inside virtual machines running on the same hardware. Download Now
