Shared Edges, Different Stress Readings

Question asked by Nate Sieger on Dec 11, 2013

I have a shell model where two perpendicular edges intersect at a shared edge with nodal bonding. When I deselect "average results across boundary for parts," I see that I can get two different sets of stress readings at the shared edge depending on which edge I select to measure.


I'm just curious how to interpret this. If I'm measuring nodal stress results, shouldn't there only be one set of stress results along a shared edge?


The attached images show the same location being measured, but I selected the two edges. You will see that the same node numbers are listed, but displaying different stress readings. Again, this has "average results across boundary for parts" unchecked.


Any insight is appreciated, thank you.
