Equivalent Total Strain Result In ANSYS® Structural Analyses

In ANSYS®, you can also calculate the equivalent total strain results. Here we show you what is the equivalent total strain and how to calculate the equivalent total strain in ANSYS® Mechanical. 


What Is The Equivalent Total Strain?

The strain is the deformation of an engineering body with the application of loads such as pressures, forces, etc. The equivalent total strain is the combination or accumulation of the four types of strains; creep, plastic, thermal and elastic. 

How To See The Equivalent Total Strain Results In ANSYS®? 

Click on the ‘Equivalent Total Strain’ in ANSYS® Mechanical.

Actually, it is very basic. But you need to define the required boundary conditions in your FEA structural analysis in ANSYS®. Then you need to create the required mesh structure for your analysis. 

After these steps, right-click on the ‘Solution’ tab, then hover your mouse on the ‘Insert’ tab. Select the ‘Equivalent Total’ option from the ‘Strain’ menu as shown above. 

Click on the ‘Solve’ button to see the equivalent total strain result in the analysis.
