### Mean stress

Hi all,

what is the most elegant way to calculate mean stresses for a STAT-NON-LIN calculation? Let's imagine I have lower bound stress values at t=4,0 and upper bound stress values at t= 6,0 how do I calculate the mean principal stress?

I.e. mean stress = (RESU_SIEQ_NOEU.PRIN1(t=6) + RESU_SIEQ_NOEU.PRIN1(t=4)) / 2. I just don't manage to make the Paraview calculators work.

Or do you calculate mean stresses more elegantly within code aster?

Best regards,

Hello highpressure,

you can create two fields for time t=4 and time t=6 with  CREA_CHAMP(OPERATION='EXTR'). Then you can combine them always with CREA_CHAMP but with option OPERATION='ASSE'.

Hi Pierre,

thanks for the idea. That means I would include that code after CALC_CHAMP, right? Or before? I still haven't understood 100% how aster is setting up its database.

I have experimented with Paravis in the meanwhile. Result in the picture attached. But I prefer your suggestion so I will try to follow it with the next calculation I do.

Finally up to including the calculation in Aster itself, but already the firsten question arose: Which TYPE_CHAM are my results for a simple STAT_NON_LINE calculation?
