Postprocessor for forces and stress distribution
The Cutres module is an interactive postprocessor for presenting forces and stress distribution in user-defined cross sections (cuts). It handles any kind and size of model including superelement models. It is particularly relevant for elongated structures such as ships for which “beam results” are requested. It is often used to check that the force and stress distribution is according to the load distribution from a hydrodynamic analysis.
What you get
- Arbitrary global cross-sections through a structure, completely independent of superelement or basic element boundaries
- Integration of force distribution over a cross section to get total axial force, shear forces, bending moments and torsional moment (beam results)
- Handles static and complex results
- Graphic presentations and display
