I was looking for  any method to show moment rotation curve using ansys workbench but I got nothing. I can only monitor displacement in specific direction and for a certain node and work manually. Is there any other way ?? Please HELP.....

Thank you for your reply.

I carefully read the posts you mentioned and I found the probe option in the first post but my problem that it is plot the all over time rotation not at each step respect to time.

The figure below shows what I am looking to find in ansys.

Moment Rotation Curve

So is this available ?

Thanks again

The Rotation Probe example was on a single step analysis that solved in 1 substep, so there is only one value in that example.

You can force the output of many points on a curve by using many substeps or by using many steps. Here are those two examples in sequential posts.

First of all, I would like to thank you for helpful posts. It helped me a lot.

- I would like to know if it's available to plot charts for some steps ??

Example : I have 4 steps and I want chart for sub steps between second 2 & 3 ??

- The second one:

The flexible rotation probe are rarely explained and the other probes so if there is any posts to investigate them especially the flexible rotation as it's connected to remote points as I see ??

The control of what appears on the built-in ANSYS charts is limited. If you need to customize, it is very simple to go to the tabular data, select all the data to copy/paste into Excel or some other charting program.

The flexible rotation probe is a recently introduced capability. I don't know of any other relevant posts.
