[LS-DYNA] Timehistory of Maximum Values

    • FluxLimited

      Is there any way to output a timehistory of the maximum velocity, temperature, etc. in the entire problem domain. Or maybe just in a part or set? I see *DATABASE_BINARY_D3MAX but the manual only talks about stresses and strains.

      I don't think there is a direct option. You may have to use LS-PrePost scripting command language (SCL) to extract the curve.
      One other suggestion, though a long shot if you don't have LS-OPT access/experience. If you do have access to LS-OPT, max velocity vs. time (or max temperature vs. time) over a part or all parts can be extracted easily. There is a direct interface, please see below.

      Please also try History -> Nodal -> select component to plot and set Value: Max -> then select a part. This should do what you are looking for, I think, based on the data in d3plot.
