# Linearized Stress

Calculate linearized stress.

## Purpose

- Calculate linearized stress along a line segment.

## Model Description

- LinearizedStress.ssp

- Material is set to Steel for all parts.
- Regular connections with 1mm gap and penetration tolerance.
- Linear static subcase with pressure load and constraints, solution settings set to Adapt for stiffness.

## Open Project

Open the SimSolid project file.

## Review Model

Review the model and load case, and plot stresses.

## Method 1: Line Segment Normal to Surface

Calculate linearized stress on a line segment drawn normal to surface.

## Method 2: Line Segment on Custom Location

Calculate linearized stress on a line segment drawn at a custom location.

## Save to CSV

Save the linearized stress values to a .csv file.

## Optional: Edit Failure Criteria

Edit the failure criteria for linearized stress calculations.
