Very new to Paraview, not new to FEM. Usual apologies apply, this may be trivial and if so sorry for asking… but if it is I’m unable to find anything in the manual (I have RTFM, at least some) or by searching the mailing list.
I have an AVS/UCD unstructured mesh of 3-node triangles representing a 3D solid deforming surface with 32 frames. The frames are consistent nodal points in time. Using frame 0 as a reference, I’d like to compute surface strain for the entire mesh. I’ve assumed that, should I write this myself, I’d use the constant-strain triangle method to find the strains, but figured (?) Paraview could probably just do this… am I right? Any hints on how?
