Real Solid Stress Tensor#

Real Solid Stress Tensor = {yes | no}

Description / Usage#

The real solid stress tensor is associated with the equations of elasticity. If the mesh motion is of LAGRANGIAN type, then these quantities are not available; if is of TOTAL_ALE type, they are available. The stress tensor has six entries (in three dimensions because it is symmetric) called T11_RS, T22_RS, T33_RS, T12_RS, T13_RS, and T23_RS in the output EXODUS II file.

The permissible values for this postprocessing option are:


Calculate the real solid stress tensor and write to the output EXODUS II file.


Do not calculate the real solid stress tensor.


No stress tensor is written for the following sample input card:

Real Solid Stress Tensor = no

Technical Discussion#

This option is applicable only to TOTAL_ALE mesh motion types (see Mesh Motion card). Compare this with Mesh Stress Tensor post processing option for other types of mesh motion.
