Each step (result) is imported as Individual Load. They can be used in Load Sets to create a combination of results with factors or in Load Group (Envelope) to find min/max.

Request results (Stress, Nodal Force, etc.) to define what categories of results have to be analyzed in Ansys Mechanical.

Selection - the elements for which the results will be read. If you are interested to check only the portion of the model reduction of the result selection to that portion will improve memory usage and calculation performance.


To analyze multiple Jobs / Standards execute Job - Analyze from the main menu:


Skip Analyzed Jobs - analyzed jobs (all Individual Loads have results) will be skipped.

Skip Jobs and Standards with Results - loads with results won't be recalculated (if option Skip Analyzed Jobs is checked);


If boundary conditions, amount of steps, loads values were changed it is required to execute update command from the Job context menu
