Description Supports Does Not Support
Reads PAM-CRASH and PAM-CRASH 2G DSY files (results files generated by the solver) into HyperGraph 2D.

No ESI license is required to use this reader. PAM-CRASH 2003 DSY files are also supported.

Stamp options


To run from the command prompt to convert PAM-CRASH or PAM-CRASH 2G DSY files into Altair Binary Files (ABF files):
  • -hgdaisy dsyfile outfile
To run in HyperGraph 2D:
  • By default, this reader is registered. If it is not, please register it before reading DSY files. It is located in the HWDIR\externalreaders\bin\$PLATFORM\plot directory. After registering the reader, you can read DSY files directly into HyperGraph 2D.
