I have a question about the output of CREO Simulate. I have performed a static analysis of an elastoplastic component and I have few questions:
1) is it possible to display the equivalent elastic strain results? In list of available strains there are:
the max/mid/min principal strain ;
XX, XY, XZ, YY, YZ, ZZ
equivalent plastic strain
2) the strain outputs along XX,XY,XZ,YY,YZ,ZZ are the total strains?
Thank you for the help!
1) no, i don't believe so.
2) yes, those are the components of the strain tensor (elastic + plastic).
