Stress Trajectories

The Stress Trajectories option in the Display Options display options icon dialog displays the principal stress trajectories in the form of a long line for s1 and a short line for s3. The trajectories are placed and centered at every finite element node.

If a square dot < appears instead of the stress trajectory symbol, this indicates that conditions are hydrostatic (s1 = s3) at that point.

If you are viewing differential data the stress trajectories will show the orientation of the differential principal stresses at each node.

Stress Trajectories is also available in the toolbar.

Stress Trajectory Color

When the data type is one of effective principal stresses, or their associated stresses (listed below), the stress trajectory color will be blue.

  • Effective Sigma 1
  • Effective Sigma 3
  • Effective Sigma Z
  • Effective Mean Stress
  • Effective Von Mises Stress

For other data types (other effective stresses and total stresses), the stress trajectory color will be red.
