    Displaying average value on entity results when using Design Study

    Joseph Hannan

      Hi,

       

      I'm using design study to vary the thickness of a component in an assembly which I am doing some thermal stress analysis on. I want to read the average stress value on along a line in the assembly however when I set the sensor to return the AVERAGE value for the line (the selected entity) the value returned in all the analysis senarios is always 0. The "value from selected entity" method works fine for returning max values along the selected entity and rms values, but not the average.

       

      The average is definately not 0, this can be seen from running the analysis in induvidual steps (i.e. without using design study). However due to the number of steps I need to use design study in the overall analysis.

       

      Does anyone know why this might be the case and a possible fix?

       

      Thanks

      Joe
