I wanted to know that if we run axis symmetry condition for 2D geometry, then the result obtained is for whole 3D i.e for all angle or for the result displayed is per radian, like if we run 2D geometry, then the forces etc. are calculated taking 1m thickness by default into z direction.

2D axis-symmetric mean modeling just 1 radian of the whole geometry. And the result is for the whole domain.
