Hi guys. I am having some "trouble" with the given values of some sensors.

The model is this:

I ran the analisys for r/d=0,005 and the program determined que maximum normal stress at some location (x,y,z) . Then I put a sensor right at that location and I ran a design study for determining the stresses with the variation of r/d

r: fillet radius

d: shaf diameter

The isssue is that the value of the sensor doesn´t match the maximun value given by the program for r/d=0,005.

Can the sensor somehow modify the mesh?

please post some screenshots of your results and some numbers. how much exactly was it off for example?

if you just care about the max, why use a sensor at that specific location? why not use model max?

my suggestion here would be similar to what we discussed in another thread on this problem, evaluate more than just single point locations. i think you might be missing the general behavior of the problem.
