1. ascii files so I can import the numbers quickly into inhouse codes
2. review the results graphically.
In my optistruct statement:
STRESS(OPTI,VON) = YES
it throws only the von mises stress components into an ascii file, great.
I also use the following statement:
optistruct creates a *.res file, but, dumps all the stress components into the *.res file, not just the vonmises stress like the above stress statement requests. My *.res file is 17GB at the moment, filled with all the stress components I'm not interested in. Both HV & Hm choke when I try to animate or contour results.
produces an h3d file with only stress & disp results, it doesn't include any results of the following:
ELFORCE(OPTI) = 10004 <=where 10004 is a set containing 210 CBAR elements
SPCFORCE(OPTI) = ALL
GPFORCE(OPTI) = 10002 <=10002 is a set containing 4 grid points
My idea was to reformat optistruct *.force, *.spcf, & *.gpf into a format that hmgenres can convert to *.res format. My current path has me looking into punch file formats so I can convert optistruct output to pch format, then use the hmnast utility to convert to *.res file.
