Dear experts,
In time history post processor, I need to extract transient nodal strain values from a bunch of nodes. After getting these transient nodal values, I need to do the average for all of these nodes and finally I want to extract a final average transient value from all of them. There is no problem doing these things manually. But in my case there are huge no. of nodes and I need to extract transient values from all of them and at last I have to average these all nodes. So this is a huge task !!! Can this be done through APDL coding ?

Regards-

You can use vget and vput to move data between arrays and POST26. Note, these are different from *vget and *vput.

Thanks Rick for the prompt reply. Can you elaborate it with some command lines ??

Dear Mr. Podder,

another option could be to use the commands available in /post26 to
postprocess the results. Please, check the ansys manual

Mechanical APDL > Basic Analysis Guide > Chapter 8. The Time-History
Postprocessor (POST26) > 8.4. Processing Your Variables to Develop
Calculated Data

You will find there a list of all the available commands, and some
examples on how to use them. For your purpose, you only need the ADD and
CFACT commands.
