Strains results in Sherlock

Post by David Dang » 21 Mar 2019, 11:58

The 2D layer viewer calculates the surface strain and the 3D viewer shows the equivalent Von-Mises strain. Von-Mises strain is generally lower.
Sherlock uses surface strains to calculate TTF due to vibration and shock.

Hello David,

Could you please show about Displacement Result Calculation in Sherlock?
When I import Abaqus odb into Sherlock I open displacement result, it does not look like any terms of U1, U2, U3, U(Magnitude) in Abaqus odb.

Thank you in advance!
Long

Hi Long,

The values should be pretty close if not identical when comparing the Sherlock 3D results with those in ABAQUS. Are you displaying the Magnitude in the Complex Form tab of your Results Option in ABAQUS?

Thanks,

David

Hi David
I display Abaqus result in Complex Form (Magnitude) and got the similar displacement with Sherlock. :D :D
Thank you so much!
Long
