Is there any possibility in the program to use the calculated stresses for solids on axial forces and moments?


For solids, we do not provide any internal forces in the program. Converting the stresses into internal forces would also be very complex, because not only mx, my, and mz would be available, but also the torsional components, mxy, myz, mxz, as well as shear and axial forces. For solids, the general rule is a direct stress evaluation. If you still need internal forces, you can refer the internal forces of the solid to a member. The result beam has been implemented in the program for this purpose.
