I'm trying to plot the stress results of simulation .There are various options to plot stress in the option "By" under details of stress.My plot for Normal Stress -by:time- and -by:maximum over time- are the same.

I wanted to know how are they different and when is each one used.And also when we say time,how do we know how much time is being considered.

If you pick a body, face, or edge, there are many nodes on that geometry and they all vary with time in a transient simulation, but at each time step, one of the nodes will be the maximum.

If you pick a vertex, there is only one node that varies over time, so by maximum doesn't apply since there is only one node.
