After a final element analysis for a structure, I want to use every single element stiffness matrix to calculate a new item as an information for an optimization problem. However, I don't know how to get the element stiffness matrix?

please use the APDL command-----/debug,-1,,,1. If you also want to get the full matrix, please use the APDL command------HBMAT .
