Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello Everyone,

I want to explain my problem. I am quite starter in Ansys... I have modeled a simple bead embedded in a support as you will see in the screenshot. Then I apply a torque onto the bead to make it rotate a bit. I want then to calculate the angle of rotation the bead I have made.
I have tried to define a directional displacement in a cylindrical coordinate system. Then I define a trajectory and follow the motion of this trajectory (which is actually a radius) in this new coordinate system.
The main issue is that I always get 0 in the value of the angle.

Thank you very much if you could help to address that issue...

Best,
