Structural Probe Results In ANSYS® Mechanical

Sometimes when you are making an FEA analysis in ANSYS®, you can be curious about the results at a specific point. The report of solutions for that specific point can be enough for you. You can do this kind of thing in ANSYS® Mechanical structural analyses. 

Here we show you how to see probe results in ANSYS® Mechanical structural analyses and the types of probe results in ANSYS®.

How To See Probe Results In ANSYS®?

It is very easy. But first, you need to obtain a required mesh structure for your analysis. Then you need to define the boundary conditions for the FEA analysis. After these steps, you can view the probe results in ANSYS® Mechanical. 

Select a proper probe result for your analysis in ANSYS®.

To add a probe result, right-click on the ‘Solution’ tab then hover your mouse on the ‘Insert’ tab. Then select one of the probes from the ‘Probe’ menu as you see above.

Select the geometries for your structural probe result.

For example, we selected the stress probe to explain the use of the probe results in ANSYS® Mechanical. In this stress probe, you need to select a geometrical feature such as vertexes, points or bodies, and faces. Then click on the ‘Apply’ button in the ‘Geometry’ tab as shown above. 

You can select a specific result.

At the ‘Result Selection’ menu, you can select a specific result value from the list, what you wish to see as probe result for the selected geometry. You can select the ‘All’ option to see all the results as the probe in ANSYS® Mechanical. 

As you can see from the list above, there are various types of probe results are available. These results are generally probing state of the general ANSYS® structural solution results.


As you understand that the use of the probe results is very simple in ANSYS® Mechanical.
