ANSYS modal analysis - how to save mode shapes

  1. Jul 26, 2012 #1
    Hi all,
    I am a new user of ANSYS mechanical and want to use ANSYS at the moment for a very simple task: Performing modal analysis of a 2D-elastic rectangle, 3 rigid boundaries and the top is a free surface.
    This works okay and I can save the eigenfrequencies to a text file by saving the results summary. However, what I also need is the mode shape, i. e. the curve of maximum displacement associated with one eigenfrequency at the top of the rectangle, preferably in ascii format. Is there some way to extract this information?

    Any hints are greatly appreciated!
