Topic: doubt about principal strain and principal stress at reinforcement
I am post-doctoral reserchear at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and I am making numeric simulations on corbels using the Atena 2D version 3 that is not compatible with windows vista, but i am using windows XP. I would like to know if is possible to capture by file the principal strains or principal stress at a specific point of the reinforcement for each load step, i.e., capture the load-strain or stress curve for a given location of the reinforcement. I only saw these informations by the graphs. So I have to see each load step, note down the value, and sometimes, the value that I want to pick is not described, I should see through the scale, and this is not a practical way to capture the values. I would like to know if there is a more automatic way to do this. I hope you can answer my question as soon as possible, because I really need to continue my research.
Thanks by the attention,
