# /ANIM/BRICK/TENS

Engine Keyword Generates animation files containing tensor data (mean value or value in specified integration point) for brick elements, in global coordinate system.

## Format

/ANIM/BRICK/TENS/Keyword4/Keyword5

## Definitions

Field Content SI Unit Example
Keyword4
STRESS
Stress tensor
STRAIN
Strain tensor
EPSP
Plastic strain tensor at integration points, only available for /MAT/LAW24 with Icpre=2.

Keyword5
0 or blank
Mean value in brick element
ijk
Value in integration Point of brick element:
i
Integration point number in direction r.
j
Integration point number in direction s.
k
Integration point number in direction t.
ALL
Values in all the integration points of brick element.

1. Strain tensor is output only if Istrain =1 in /PROP/TYPE14 (SOLID); except for material laws 14, 24 and material laws greater than 28 (in these cases strain tensor is output irrespective of Istrain value).
2. If Keyword5=0 or blank:
• Stress tensor is output in the global coordinate system, irrespective of solid element formulation
• Strain tensor is output in the global coordinate system
• The "SPH outputs tensor" are available with Keyword4=STRESS
3. If Keyword5=ijk or ALL:
• If the integration point ijk does not exist in a solid, stress/strain tensor is then set to 0.

For example:

For a one integration point 8 nodes solid, stress/strain tensor for integration point 112 is set to 0. Only stress/strain tensor for integration point 111 can have non-null components.

• If the integration point ijk does exist in a solid, stress/strain tensor could output using Keyword5=ijk.

For example in one 8 nodes solid (with integration points 2x2x2):

Using /ANIM/BRICK/TENS/STRESS/121 to output stress in integration point i=1,j=2,k=1
• In case of /PROP/TYPE20 (TSHELL), /PROP/TYPE21 (TSH_ORTH), /PROP/TYPE22 (TSH_COMP) and Isolid =15, syntax becomes:

/ANIM/BRICK/TENS/STRESS/0j0 for stress

/ANIM/BRICK/TENS/STRAIN/0j0 for strain

• $j\ge 10$ (in case of /PROP/TYPE22 (TSH_COMP)), syntax becomes:

/ANIM/BRICK/TENS/STRESS/i0k/j

/ANIM/BRICK/TENS/STRAIN/i0k/j

4. With 10 < j < 200
