Quad strain in Wingraf Limit Load Iteration


I’m performing an ULTI analysis, and I achive the desired limit values of the material:

Where can I see this figure in Wingraf? The Von Mises strains are higher:

Which kind of strain does the software assume is the one that generates the failure of the structure?

Thanks and regards,


Hello Gonzalo

The minimum averaged steel strain can be found in the following Graphic results folder:

Graphic > Results > Quadrilateral Elements > Nonlinear Results > Steel > Minimum averaged steel strain

To compare the results, you need to plot the results within the Gauss points.
