Hi everyone,

I am trying to transfer stress, strain of one analysis to a new analysis. The element type changes in the new analysis and the result from the previous analysis is the initial condition. Can anybody give me any idea how this can be done in APDL?

Example: Consider the manufacturing and operation of a solenoid.

At the first step, the wire is wounded with pretention (I use INISTATE command) which results in stress, strain and deflection. I am using Plane 182.

At the second step, the resultant stress and deflection is the initial condition and certain amount of current flows through the wire. This generates electromagnetic force and results in more stress and strains. I have to use Plane 13 for this which doesn't support INISTATE.

At the third and final step, I need to transfer stress and strains from step 1, nodal forces from step 2 altogether and solve for final stress and strains.

Sincerely,
