Solver Output in Explicit Dynamics

    • Costas

      Hi Everyone,

      I performed an Explicit Dynamics analysis and when I go to the Solver Output (in Solution Information) I get only some cycles info as well as times (please see image 1 below), without any other information about the process. Could you please advise? The issue does not exist in Static Structural analysis (please see image 2 below).

      Thank you.

      Regards,

      Costas

      Hi Costas, check the admodel.log in the solver file directory to see the full information of the solver outout

      Cheers, Ram

      Hi Ram.

      Many thanks for your reply. I tried to open the file which opens a folder containing relevant files. I opened the: admodel.prt (which contains information about materials, boundary conditions, energy etc.) and admodel (which gives the cycles timing). I also tried to open admodel.sum but it cannot be opened in a readable encoding. So, I cannot find details regarding element type (I found the number of elements but not their type). Any suggestion?

      Thanks,

      Costas

      you can find the element tye in the mesh metic option with in the explcit system mesh settings.

      Many thanks Ram.

      I found that the element is Quad4 which obviously means quadrilateral with 4 nodes.

      However, is there a way to find the element name (for example PLANE182 etc.) used in the analysis, so I can see its detailed features?
