When one uses the list stress, strain and displacement function when one uses the element's nodes to determine the von mises stress the values differ from the individual node values. See attached word doc. Should this happen or are we using or understanding the function incorrectly?
Hi Bennie: It appears the upper list box shows the independent element's nodal stress value, and the lower box shows the nodal stress value as an average calculated from all adjacent elements' nodal stress values which are connected at the same node. Does that help?
