Output Menu

Lists various options to define animation and time history outputs in the model for post-processing. Accordingly, they are broadly classified into three sections as Animation, Time History and Checks.

Restriction: The menu is slightly different for LS-DYNA, Radioss and PAM-CRASH solvers.
Database Extent Opens the control card Database Extent that allows you to specify the result types that needs to be output in animation file. (LS-DYNA user profile only)
Database BINARY Opens the control cards that specify the output frequency for BINARY files including animation files. (LS-DYNA user profile only)
Database Format Control card to specify the format of the animation file. (LS-DYNA user profile only)
Node, Accelerometer, Element, Component, Assembly, System, Contact, Rigid Wall and Section Create, edit and review Time History requests on these entities. Opens the Output Blocks panel with the corresponding entity set for the entity selector.
History Interval Opens the control cards that specify the output frequency and format for time history files. (LS-DYNA user profile only)
Relative Displacement Interactively create a spring with no stiffness to measure the distance between the two nodes of interest and the corresponding TH/SPRING card for output in time history file. (Radioss user profile only)
Checks > Penetration Opens the Penetration/Intersection panel, allowing you to check for penetrations and/or intersections of elements.
Checks > Model Checker Checks the model for errors and warnings. This tool is available in the Crash Radioss and LS-DYNA user profiles.
