Paul Kieloch Results RFEM Finite Element Analysis

Are the result values in the FE elements averaged or do they refer to nodal values? Where to set it?


When displaying the result values 'Values on Surfaces', there are two distinctions.

The result values are displayed either on the 'Grid and User-Defined Points' or on the 'FE Mesh Points'.

When displaying the 'Grid and User-Defined Points', the results are displayed in the distance of the grid points.

The distance of the grid points is a property of the surface and can be controlled in the 'Edit Surface' dialog box.

Alternatively, you can display the result values in 'FE Mesh Points'.

The number of FE mesh points depends on the generated FE mesh size.

You can control the displayed color gradient by selecting the option 'Internal Forces/Stresses' in the Display navigator. See the FAQ below.
