I have plotted a plot true distance along path on x-axis and Stress on y-axis.But I want In reverse i.e. stress on x-axis and distance on y-axis. I have seen options but I could not found out how to interchange axes? could you help me in that?
Another was I want 3 different plots on same graph in abaqus.Is there any procedure to get that one?
Well, the solution is not that straighforward.
If you are OK with visulaizing the curves in a spread sheet, then you can write the XY Data to a text file with the option
This will write the data in a text file. You can import the file in MSExcel or any other spreadsheets. There you can plot in any way that you want.
If you specifically want to plot Stress in X axis and Distance in Y Axis, then follow the steps mentioned above. In the spreadsheet, exchange the columns, so that Stress is in first column and Displacement in second column. Retain only this XY Data and delete all other text from the file and save this spreadsheet as CSV ( Comma Seperated Values).
From Abaqus, do the following :
Select the CSV File you have created and save it as a XY Data. Plotting that will give you the curve required.
Plotting Multiple curves is very easy in Abaqus. Extract the required XY Data. Then
Select the required Data and Click Plot
