Sum of Three Principal Stress (S1+S2+S3) (ASME VIII Div 2 Section 5.3)

Hi Simulators!!!!

 

Is there a part in Autodesk Simulation Mechanical program which shows the result of sum of three principal stresses (S1+S2+S3) to be compared against ASME VIII Div 2  Section 5.3 requirement (Allowable of 4S). As of now I'm just manually doing it at a node that shows the Maximum Principal Stress and just add it manually for that particular node. It would be convenient if there's a part of the program for this type of result which covers all nodes and show the maximum result.

 

Many Thanks....Cheers!!!!

Hi Tibor,

 

I don't think there is a button for those results in Sim Mech. However, the custom results tool should be able to add up the three values and display it as a contour plot. With that, you can directly probe the sum of the stresses directly.

 

A few things to note, the custom results need to be viewed using the legacy UI. To disable the ribbon, go to Tools > Application Options > General Information and uncheck Ribbon style. You can then view the results. I hope Autodesk fixes this soon as it has been a known issue for quite some time.

 

Regards

Ilyas
