`Item`

Label identifying the item. Valid item labels are shown in the table below. Some items also require a component label.

`Comp`

Component of the item (if required). Valid component labels are shown in the table below.

**PRESOL** prints the solution results for the selected elements in the sorted
sequence.

For example, **PRESOL**,S prints the stress items SX, SY, SZ, SXY, SYZ, and
SXZ for the node locations of the element.

Component results are in the global Cartesian coordinate directions unless transformed
(**RSYS**).

Shell elements print values at the top, then bottom of the element (or layer). If KEYOPT(8) = 2 (for SHELL181, SHELL208, SHELL209, SHELL281, or ELBOW290), the results are printed in the order TOP, BOT and then MID of each element, (or layer). The MID value is the actual value to the results file.

Items are listed as columns of a table versus element number. An exception occurs for item ELEM, which uses an element format--all applicable line element results are listed per element--instead of a tabular format.

You can issue **FORCE** to define which component of the nodal load is to be
used (static, damping, inertia, or total).

To print items not available via **PRESOL** (such as line element results),
see **ETABLE** and **PRETAB**.

For PowerGraphics (**/GRAPHICS**,POWER), results are listed only for the
element surface. Items marked [2] are not supported by
PowerGraphics.

Use

**FORCE**for type.Works only if failure criteria information is provided (

**FC**and**TB**).Some element- and material-type limitations apply. (For more information, see the documentation for the

**PRERR**command.)Do not use the

**PRESOL**command to obtain contact forces for contact elements. The force values reported by this command may not be accurate for these elements. Instead, use the**ETABLE**command to obtain contact force values.
