Object size after deformation in ANSYS Workbench

  1. Jun 24, 2015 #1
    I have a maybe very simple question. Is there a possibility to get the size or length of an edge in Ansys, after the simulation/in the deformed object? I have a sort of a bending beam and want to know his length after deformation.
    With the directional deformation i could get an approximation by subtracting the first and the last point... but this isn't very exact. With the strain it doesn't work because I have the strain for every single point and not one number for the whole object to multiply it with the original length(which is written at the bottom when I select an edge). Thanks for your help.
