8.14 Surfaces - Global Deformations

To control the graphical display of surface displacements and rotations related to the global axes X, Y, and Z, select the Global Deformations check box in the Results navigator. Table 4.14 shows the global deformations of surfaces in numerical form.

Figure 8.37 Results navigator: Global Deformations
Figure 8.38 Table 4.14 Surfaces - Global Deformations

The Grid Point and Grid Point Coordinates table columns correspond to those of the previous results table 4.13 Surfaces - Local Deformations.

Displacements / Rotations

The surface deformations have the following meanings:

Table 8.7 Global surface deformations

|u|

Absolute total displacement (not for result combinations)

uX

Displacement of surface in direction of global axis X

uY

Displacement of surface in direction of global axis Y

uZ

Displacement of surface in direction of global axis Z

φX

Rotation of surface about global axis X

φY

Rotation of surface about global axis Y

φZ

Rotation of surface about global axis Z
