hey there,

while doing a 2-way-FSI calculation, which is performing well and everything works fine, i´m facing a problem while trying to show ALL meshelements from the ANSYS.rst file.

I can view the volume elements of the FEM solution but all line elements are missing. Since they are a crucial part of the whole static setup, i want to examine them too.

Is this by purpose or am i just missing something?
Is there a way to show ALL used elements from a given rst-file within the workbench post container?

Thanks in advance,
neewbie

just realized that asking FEM questions on cfd-online isn´t a good idea.

okay... workaround as follows:

-export the line element node data from MAPDL by script (select by element type) and save in proj-user-file-dir after solving (.rst available)
-edit file via PERL to get rid of unnecessary lines and entries and save edited .csv-file
-open post session and create polyline from edited .csv-file

This works quite good except for the fact that for multiple lines you get one total polyline for all linebodies. some more scripting ness. to separate for each line element body.

Any other solutions?
