average strain

Dear OVITO experts,

I am going to get average over strain tensors. As I have noticed,  this feature is not available in the free version of OVITO Basic. right?  its only available for shear strain calculation.

by the way,  averaging over "von mises shear strain" value could be also meaningful?! Since, this parameter shows only regions with maximum shear strain which are prone to deformation or fracture. right?

any comment is highly appreciated.

Best regards,


Dear Bahman,

yes, I can confirm that calculating system averages of any particle property requires you to use the python scripting interface which is a feature of OVITO Pro.
For calculating time averages, OVITO Pro has an out-of-the box solution which is called Time averaging modifier.

Please see for more information.
