I have used A2M to read the nodal displacements of the fil file, as well as the nodal coordinates. As an example the first line of the U matrix is: 1.0000e+00 8.6664e-04 -4.1478e-05 -8.7155e-03 -3.2920e-04 1.6268e-07 -6.6415e-10 and of the COORD matrix: 1.0000e+00 -8.5265e-14 3.0800e+00 -1.5800e-01 If I do a probe value for the node with label 1 in ABAQUS GUI, it renders: Node: CROSSSECTION-1.1
1 2 3 Magnitude
Base coordinates: -8.52651e-14, 3.08000e+00, -1.58000e-01, -
Scale: 1.00000e+02, 1.00000e+02, 1.00000e+02, -
Deformed coordinates (unscaled): 1.73329e-03, 3.07992e+00, -1.75431e-01, -
Deformed coordinates (scaled): 1.73329e-01, 3.07170e+00, -1.90110e+00, -
Displacement (unscaled): 1.73329e-03, -8.29570e-05, -1.74310e-02, 1.75172e-02 Apparently the node identification is correct (same base coordinates), but the displacement components are not.. any idea? It is important to note that for some reason the INP file could not have COORD, U in the same line so i divided them as you said in a previous post: *NODE FILE
U At first glance, it seems that SSAVG comparison is suffering from similar issues.
