In static structural, is it possible to isolate some elements so that simulation results will not be effected by those elements?

Do you want to remove the results on these elements in post-processing or want to remove them before solving them?

For the first option, you can customize the legend to show a grey color for the excess result.

Or you can create a worksheet based named selection, to filter out the elements that you do not want to show results on.


For the second option you need to use EKILL command from APDL.
