stresses in global axis system


New member
I'm working on verification of stress test with my model and different boundary conditions. Trying to let Catia show me the stresses and/or strains in the x, y and z-direction of the global axis system. So far have only found the principal stresses and strains, but need the stresses in the 3 main directions. Anyone can help?

Second problem is placing strain tensor on specific point in a face/plate. Can only place them on whole plate, but only want to know strain/stress in certain point of face without having to select the node all the time. Anyone has a solution?

It's greatly appreciated if someone could help me.
