Von Mises Stress#

Von Mises Stress = {yes | no}

Description / Usage#

This option allows you to plot the Von Mises stress tensor invarients, for use with the FAUX_PLASTICITY model of the modulus. These quantities are written to the Output EXODUS II file.

The permissible values for this postprocessing option are:


Calculate the von Mises stress invariants and output as a nodal variable in the Output EXODUS II file.


Do not calculate the invariants (default).


The following sample card requests LAMBDA be written to the EXODUS II file:

Von Mises Stress = yes
