In ABAQUS 1-direction is x or radial direction.
In ABAQUS 2-direction is y or tangential direction.
In ABAQUS 3-direction is z or axial direction.
In order to see the ABAQUS results in cylindrical coordinates, i.e. circumferential stress, follow these guidelines:
- define a cylindrical coordinate system.
- visualize the stress state in this coordinate system, for this
+ Menu: Results/Options
+ In Transformation tab, choose user-specified option
+ Select the new coordinate system defined previously, done
+ Select S22 to visualize the circumferential stress
The procedure is detailed in the attached video file.
