structural analysis-possible disagreement between displayed and calulated deformation
 
3 Attachment(s)
Hello, i am running a thermal-structural coupled analysis to calculate the deformation of a tube after the application of cold stimulation at the one side. While processing the results i can see optically that the tube suffers much bigger deformation than the calculated one from the software. Is that possible?

i am attaching two pictures from my simulation for you to understand what i am saying. This is a tube whith inner diameter 2 microns and outer 6.

By default, the deformations are displayed with a certain magnification factor.
You can find the input for this feature somewhere in the upper left corner of the window.
