- HyperView supports ANSYS structural, thermal, and electromagnetic results for ANSYS version 2022R1, 2019R3 and earlier.
- Model information can be extracted directly from the ANSYS result file. It can also be extracted from the ANSYS .cdb file. When loading a model, you can specify an ANSYS .rst, .cdb or .rmg file for the Load model option. However, for the Load results option, you must specify an ANSYS .rst file.
- HyperView calculates the von Mises strain from the six strain components using a Poisson's ratio of 0.3 for the Elastic and Thermal strains and using a Poisson's ratio of 0.5 for Plastic and Creep strains. These von Mises strain values are available under the data names Elastic strain, Plastic strain, Creep strain and Thermal strain and sub data type von Mises.
- ANSYS 6.0 and newer version result files contain the von Mises strain values. HyperView extracts these von Mises strain values and they are available in the data name called Direct von Mises strain. It is recommended that you use the Direct von Mises strain option. The von Mises strain option is also available in the Tensor Plot panel through the Elastric strain, Plastic strain, Creep strain, and Thermal strain result types; however, you may find slight differences in the results compared to the Direct von Mises strain option due to numerical accuracy used in von Mises strain calculations in HyperView.
- The data types displacements, rotations, reaction forces, and reaction moments (result type NODE) are supported for all 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D elements.
- ELEMENT results, such as stresses and strains, are always displayed in the Global Rectangular Coordinate System.
- For SHELL elements, HyperView supports the upper and lower layer results.
- Contact results are supported for the elements CONTACT48, CONTACT49, CONTACT52, CONTACT171, CONTACT172, CONTACT173, and CONTACT174.
- The following elements are supported by the HyperView

- ANSYS ETABLE results support: ANSYS ETABLE results are available for following elements only - BEAM4, PLANE42, BEAM44, SOLID45, SHELL57, SHELL63, SHELL93, SOLID95, SHELL99, SHELL181, BEAM188, FLUID116, LINK31, LINK 32, LINK33, LINK34, LINK71, CONTACT170, CONTACT 173, SOLID70, SOLID226, SOLID227, SOLID87, SOLID90, SOLID185-SOLID186, SOLID187, PLANE55, PLANE13, PLANE223, PLANE35, PLANE77, PLANE182, PLANE183, SHELL281, SURF151, SURF152, SURF251, SURF252. To post process the ETABLE results, you need to know the item name and sequence number of the result type under the ETABLE result list that is available for each element type in the ANSYS solver manual.
- HyperView supports composite elements when composite definition is in either REALSETS or in SECDATA. HyperView can post process results for all layers for the following composite elements – SOLID46, SELL99, SHELL91 , SHELL131, SHELL132, SOLID191, SHELL181, SOLID185, SOLID186, SOLSH190, SHELL208, SHELL209, SOLID278, SOLID279, SHELL281.
- HyperView supports .rst files generated from the RSPLIT command.
- The following limitations apply:
- Element results such as stresses and strains are not supported for ANSYS 1-D elements such as LINK1, etc. Element results are supported for 2-D and 3-D elements.
- Results for composite elements other than mentioned above are supported.
- If some nodes in the model are rotated within a local coordinate system, and the local coordinate system is subsequently deleted, an incorrect animation plot will result.
- ETABLE results are available only for the output files from ANSYS version 9.0 and newer.
