Components for Reactions at Point Constraints

When you select Reaction from the Quantity drop-down list, the Component drop-down list displays the components specific to this quantity. Use this drop-down list to further refine your quantity definition.

• X- The quantity in the X direction or about the X axis. X is not available for reaction moment, rotation, rotation acceleration, and rotation velocity for all 2D models.

• Y- The quantity in the Y direction or about the Y axis. Y is not available for 2D plane strain and 2D axisymmetric models.

• Z- The quantity in the Z direction or about the Z axis. Z is not available for any 2D model.
