Cosmos user defined sectional loads

Hi everyone,

Our company is specialised in designing windturbines. Currently we are certifying our 600kW machine. We have sent all the necessary information of the structure to a company spialised in simulations. When we have to results, we have to make a spreadsheat of the stress concentration factors.

Ok my question is the following: Is cosmos able to show/detect stresses in user defined sections. I will give an example of what i mean. I have drawn the tower structure. Now it consists of 18 rings welded together using full penetration welds. I have drawn the welds using a revolve together with the rings as 1 body. So far so good But now i need to know in certain sections how high the stresses are given a certan loads case working on the top.

Is it posible to ask cosmos to give me this information? And when i find this, can I export this into an excel sheet?

Thanks
Sven
