stress calculation

i am working on the vertical chute problem of granular materials. can you tell me how can i find the stresses (i have tried the stress/atom command , its not of much use).

Compute pressure and compute stress/atom calculate
stresses - whether for granular materials or not.
You'll have to explain why they are not of much use.


Hi Vikas,

I think you need to provide some details about your problem; specifically, why is the stress/atom command not useful to you? One idea I might suggest would be to use the reduce or reduce/region computes to take the information from stress/atom and combine it into a locally-averaged quantity. Again, more specifics would be helpful.
