    How to find the points on the beam with maximum and minimum bending stresses using simulation Xpress?

    Siva Praneeth

      I designed a cantilever beam using part.

      and I used fixture to fix the beam as a cantilever beam.

      When I use the simulation xpress to obtain the results, I am getting the simulation results like displacements and von mis stresses.


      What I want to find and verify with my calculated results is " the direction of neutral axis" and also "the points at which maximum and minimum bending stresses occur"".


      Can anyone help me to do this?



      Thank you
