Stored elastic energy

Is there a way in sofistik to analyse the total ammount of stored elastic energy in the system?

I would like to see how much energy I build into the system during a bending active analysis and then to see how much energy that gets dissapated during a relaxation step.

Best,
David

Hello David

As far as I know you can display the strain energy in the Report Browser with the two commands ECHO STAT FULL and ECHO GRP FULL (see ASE manual chapter 3.37 ECHO -Output Control).

Apart from that it is possible to show the saved energy of each group in each step in the Result Viewer (But make sure to insert the above commands).

Result Viewer > Results > Groups > Total energy of group
