In a section through a surface, result diagrams are not displayed in the entire area of the section. What is the reason?

Answer

If the section was defined on an unused line, activate the "Integrate unutilized objects into surfaces" check box in the FE mesh settings. In Figure 1, a section on lines 7 and 12 is defined. Line 7 has no other function for surface 1. It is neither the boundary line of surface 1, nor does it have a support or a load. In the FE mesh settings, the "Integrate unused objects into surfaces" check box is clear so that no result diagrams are displayed on line 7. In contrast, line 12 is stressed so that result diagrams are displayed on this line. If the "Integrate unused objects into surfaces" check box is selected, result diagrams are also displayed on line 7.

If the section runs through several surfaces, the respective surfaces are listed in the "On Surface No." section specify. Figure 2 shows a section through Surfaces 3 and 4. In the "On Surfaces No." section only the surface 3 is specified so that result diagrams are only displayed on this surface. Surface 4 would be described in the section "On Surfaces No." so that result diagrams are also displayed here.
