How to get true deformations after static analysis based on the results of an explicit LS DYNA analy

How to get true deformations after static analysis based on the results of an explicit LS DYNA analy

How to get true deformations after static analysis based on the results of an explicit LS DYNA analy

(OP)
Good afternoon, I am practicing Ls-dyna laser shock peening simulation. I perform an explicit analysis in Ansys LS-DYNA and then export the stresses to Static Structural, after solving I get the stress distribution, but I also need a surface deformation profile. I tried to import EPS, but it didn't lead to success. Most likely I'm doing something wrong, could you tell me how to solve this problem?

Thanks for help!

RE: How to get true deformations after static analysis based on the results of an explicit LS DYNA analy

I am not sure I understand the question or the need to export stresses to ANSYS/Mechanical (from ANSYS/LS-DYNA). What is your goal? If the goal is to predict deformation at a steady state, then why not run the explicit analysis a bit longer or use dynamic relaxation or some other method already available in ANSYS/LS-DYNA? By ANSYS/LS-DYNA I mean the native code; not its fancy version in ANSYS/WorkBench. I make that remark because integrating the native general purpose FE code comprehensively is a long-term undertaking.
