SW simulation Shear Stress direction convention?

Question asked by David Flemming on Jun 16, 2015

Good Day everyone,


Quick question...I would like to know how is it that the SW Sim results wrt shear stress is interpreted.


For example: I'm doing a simple torsion test. For the Shear Stress Plot, TXZ: Shear in Z Direction on the YZ plane, I get this...

Now i understand this is the YZ plane I'm looking at here, but what do they mean by 'Shear in the Z Direction'? To me, it seems as like the shear is in the Y direction here.


Can anyone clarify this for me?
