*If you select any of these options, use the arrow button to select a coordinate system relative to which you define the measure. The default coordinate system is the WCS. You can also select a UCS.
* Creo Simulate derives von Mises strain in the same way as von Mises stress, and maximum shear strain in the same way as maximum shear stress. For more information, see option information for Strain Results Quantity or Stress Results Quantity.
Structure expresses stress values and directions somewhat differently than they are sometimes described in textbooks. To learn more about how Structure stresses relate to textbook examples, see How Stress Components Relate to Textbook Examples.
