Hey,

I need to get the co-ordinates for the deformed shape upon performing the structural analysis in ANSYS. Is there a way to obtain the deformed shape co-ordinates directly?

Cheers, Vish

Hi Vish,

You can output these from ANSYS by either right clicking on the variable in workbench (and exporting to Excel) or using the exprofile,,, APDL command

In version 11.0, read the ANSYS results into CFX-Post and you export a profile boundary condition from the region with the specified displacements.

Note that to use the profile, you will have to feed the profile CEL function the original node coordinates, since the nodes will change locations. To do this, create three expressions for the original location:

X0 = x - Total Mesh Displacement X Y0 = y - Total Mesh Displacement Y Z0 = z - Total Mesh Displacement Z

You profile function would look something like this:

myprofile.Total Mesh Displacement X(X0, Y0, Z0)

Regards, Robin
