Component for Linearized Stress Results

Use the Component drop-down list to select the specific type of linearized stress quantity results you want Creo Simulate to display on the Linearized Stress Report dialog box. Creo Simulate calculates and reports the linearized stress values with respect to a local coordinate system with the X axis aligned with the line from location 1 to location 2 and the origin at the midpoint of the line from location 1 to location 2. For 2D models, the local Z axis is the same as the WCS Z axis and the local Y axis is determined by the right-hand rule. For a 3D model, you pick a point to define the local XY plane, and the local Z and Y axes are determined by the right-hand rule.

You can then view linearized stress values for different locations in your model, using the same component option.

These stress quantities apply to 2D shells, 2D solids, 2D plates, and 3D solids.

You can select from these options:

• Max Principal—the most positive principal stress

• Min Principal—the least positive principal stress

• Max Prin - Min Prin—the difference between the most positive and least positive principal stress

• Von Mises—a combination of all stress components

• Local XX—normal stress along the local X axis

• Local YY—normal stress along the local Y axis

• Local ZZ—normal stress along the local Z axis

• Local XY—shear stress in the local XY plane

• Local XZ—shear stress in the local XZ plane

• Local YZ—shear stress in the local YZ plane

• ZZ—normal stress along the local Z axis for 2D shells and 2D solids. This stress component is always 0 for 2D plates.
