    Howto evaluate stress over a plane or section?

    F. R

      Hej,

       

      how is it possible to determine the average stress over a area/plane (e.g. yellow/black line in image below) in simulation results? Is that possible with solidworks?

      Background: in this study different joints are researched. The average shear in the plane yellow/plane or the average tensile stress in the neck are important for the design evaluation.

      Ps.: I hope that the right technical terms for this case were used.

       

      Also helpful is to:

      break = cut the model using one of the tools in solidworks like split
