Re: Strain in

Hi Paulo, What I have found is that Calculate Stresses = true works as described in the ElmerModelsManual.pdf->Linear Elasticity Solver. The elastic constants can then be used to get strains from the stresses. The output has VonMises as well as stress tensor components Stress.1 to Stress.6 I assume ...

WriteToPost taking too long

Hi, I am working with models with about 100k to 200k elements with linearstress solver in Eigen analysis mode with only displacement output. The solver takes about a minute, but then the writetopost takes 10 to 20 minutes. Is this normal? The output files .dat and .ep are in the order of 100MB each....

Eigenmode analysis output only high frequency

Hi, I am working with ultrasonics and I regularly do eigen-analysis in PTC Mechanica where one can input start and end frequencies for eigen analysis and get modes between those freuqencies. For Elmer, in the "Stress Analysis" linear elastic module, the Eigen System Values paramter is useful. Howeve...

Simple file name swap in Elmer6.0\samples\ElmerGUI\iges

Looks like
Elmer6.0\samples\ElmerGUI\iges\rectangle_in_channel.iges
and
Elmer6.0\samples\ElmerGUI\iges\cylinder_in_channel.iges

have their names exchanged.

List of Element types

Is there a comprehensive list of short description of element types. I couldn't find the description for type 202 which is used in some of the tutorials...

Thanks,

Re: Application fields of Elmer

I am trying to use electrostatics, mechanics and electrochemistry... for mechanical strain sensors using electrochemical principles.
