Rotation Results Quantity
Creo Simulate supports this quantity for Structure analyses of shell and beam models. Be aware that:
For the Rotation quantity, you must select Rotations as an analysis output when you define the analysis.
You cannot specify rotation as a quantity for 2D plane stress models.
For FEM mode, the Rotation quantity is available for all models, but only returns nonzero results for beam and shell models.
When you select Rotation from the Quantity drop-down list, Creo Simulate may alter the selections on the Quantity tab. Some selections do not appear unless the item is part of the design study you choose. The possible selections include:
Amplitude or Phase—Display either the amplitude or the phase of the velocity results. This option is available only if you select the display type as Fringe, Graph, or Model. Also the component of rotation you select must be X, Y, or Z.
* Phase and Amplitude are applicable only for dynamic frequency analysis.
Component—Select a component. The directional components that appear on this drop-down list change if you change the coordinate system using the Relative To drop-down list.
Relative To—Display results relative to a directional component.
Graph Location—Select a location from the drop-down list to display in the result window. Use the selector arrow to display your model and pick the entity you want to use in your results display. This area appears only if you select a display type of Graph.
Creo Simulate reports rotation in radians (1 radian = 57.29578) and displays the SRSS of the rotation components you select.
