Hi Guys,

I made a simple model: a solid beam and inside this one 2 lines.
this lines I assigned a cross section with "designmodeler".

Now, with the "explicit dynamic" i charged the geometry and put the load and in a extream face of beam i put a fixed support. In the "body interaction" i select definition -> type -> reinforcement
and i run the auto mesh, of course.

Next i ran the model, and with this i can get the deformation of 2 reinforcement bars but ansys doesn't display the tension on these. therefore you can imagine an illogic result

anyone have some idea or solution to get display the stress on reinforcement bars?

You asked specifically about viewing the rebars, which I have not used but there is an ANSYS Mechanical explicit dynamics tutorial for reinforced concrete which might help you, and which somebody has demonstrated in YouTube (

If you have a commercial (maybe OK for academic non-Student as well) ANSYS licence then you can log in to the ANSYS Customer Portal. See Knowledge Resource #2059355, which has a presentation and Workbench project about creating reinforcement for concrete in Mechanical.
