To add deformation to the solution, first click Deformation > Total to add the total deformation to the solution. It should appear in the outline tree.to add the solution sub menu to menu bar. Now in the solution sub menu click
In the solution sub menu, select Stress > Equivalent (von-Mises). In the details pane, ensure Geometry is set to All Bodies.
In the solution sub menu, select Stress > Normal. In the details pane, ensure Orientation is set to X Axis, and Geometry is set to All Bodies. Rename the Stress to StressXX by right clicking Normal Stress in the Outline window and selecting Rename.
We are ready to solve the simulation. Press
