I have an issue when trying to extract nodal stresses from Abaqus. I am utilizing the input file approach instead of the Python script approach. I know that Abaqus provides stresses for each element but I am interested in the stresses at each node. I have seen that people advise to use the following:
*element output, position=nodes, directions=YES
In the input file in order to obtain stresses at each node, but I do not know how to extract these values utilizing the Abaqus2MatLab Toolbox. I keep extracting the stresses at each element in the form of number of elements * Number of integration Points * Number of Increments * Section Points
If anyone knows the Rec code or can direct me in the right direction it will be greatly appreciated.
