ASCII Output File for Beam Resultant

ASCII Output File for Beam Resultant

Greetings!

I have a question about the ASCII output file of Creo Simulate version 3.0

I want to extract the axial and shear forces of my bolts from my model, which are modeled as beam elements. I know that I could extract the forces by selecting fringe -> beam resultant or Graph-> Shear and Moment in the Result Window Definition, but by doing so I could only select the beam element 1 by 1. The project that I'm doing right now have like 20++ bolts per model and there are different types of bolts used for the model, so it's really time consuming and inefficient to check the beam element 1 by 1 to find the critical forces for each type of bolt.

The question is, is there any way to extract the axial and shear forces from all of the beam elements as a table? (just like the table from ASCII) If there is one, could someone please explain me how to do it?

 

Thank you in advance Smiley Happy

Re: ASCII Output File for Beam Resultant

not for beams, but for bolts possible:
