We have simulated a mechanical case in SalomeMeca 2017, and in order to post-process the results we have used the Paraview module included in that version. Unfortunately, we have found some strange results when applying the “Integrate Variables” filters to the data of Von Mises stresses norm. Although this variables is always positive, the result of applying the filter is negative. How is this possible? We think that the “Integrate Variables” filter in Paraview is integrating a given variable in the whole volume of the domain, is it true? Could you help with the senseless result?
Thank you very much in advance.
