Prints nodal solution results.
Label identifying the item. Valid item labels are shown in th etgable below. Some items also require a component label.
Component of the item (if required). Valid component labels are shown in the table below. Default = COMP.
Prints the nodal solution results for the selected nodes in the sorted sequence.
For example, PRNSOL,U,X prints the X component of displacement vector U (that is, the UX degree of freedom).
Component results are in the global Cartesian coordinate directions unless transformed (RSYS).
You can define which component of the nodal load (static, damping, inertia, or total) should be used (FORCE).
PowerGraphics can affect your nodal solution listings. For PowerGraphics (/GRAPHICS,POWER), results are listed for the model exterior surfaces only.
When shell element types are present, results are output on a surface-by-surface basis. For shell elements (such as SHELL181 or SHELL281), and for ELBOW290, printed output is for both the top and bottom surfaces. For solid elements such as SOLID185, the output is averaged for each surface and printed as follows:
Node at a vertex: Three lines are output (one printed line for each surface).
Node on an edge: Two lines are output (one printed line for each surface).
Nodes on a face: One value is output.
Nodes interior to the volume: No printed values are output.
If a node is common to more than one element, or if a geometric discontinuity exists, several conflicting listings may result. For example, a corner node incorporating results from solid elements and shell elements could yield as many as nine different results; the printed output would be averages at the top and bottom for the three shell surfaces plus averages at the three surfaces for the solid, for a total of nine lines of output. The program does not average result listings across geometric discontinuities when shell element types are present. It is important to analyze the listings at discontinuities to ascertain the significance of each set of data.
The printed output for full graphics (/GRAPHICS,FULL) averages results at the node. For shell elements, the default for display is TOP so that the results for the top of the shell are averaged with the other elements attached to that node.
Items marked  are not supported by PowerGraphics.
To print midside nodes, first issue /EFACET,2.
