How can you compare simulation results for the same model with different boundary conditions?

 You can use a Solution Combination to find the difference between the two models. First, right click on the Model Object in the Outline Tree and insert a Solution Combination Object into the Outline Tree. In the Solution Combination worksheet window, right click on the header grid and add a row. In the created row, specify a coefficient of 1.0, the applicable environment, and the solution time point. Repeat the above procedure for the result set with the different set of boundary conditions, but specify a coefficient of -1.0. These steps will create a result set that is the difference between the environments. After defining the Solution Combination, RMB on the Solution Combination Object in the Outline Tree and insert the desired post-processing action (i.e., plot directional deformation). Then RMB and solve the Solution Combination.

hello sir 

                i have doubt that when i have solved two problem in different file.

for ex. 1) cantilever beam with point load 10 N

            2) cantilever beam with moment  10Nm

then where to use the solution combination in one or both.

can you show some video i tried to use for above case but not succeeded.

Maurya, you should have the models linked to each other for Solution Combination.

Is solution combination valid for different load cases with different boundary boundary condition?
