    Stress plots for Tensile and Compressive stress in a assembly.

    Sandeep S



      I am running Linear static FEA in Solidworks simulation for an assembly in which all the parts are made up of steel.

      I usually consider only Von mises stresses as failure criterion for this assembly. But now i want to know the maximum tensile and compressive stress in the assembly and its location.


      Please let me know on how to get the values of maximum tensile and compressive stresses or plots for tensile and compressive stress.


      Thanks in advance,
