Apply Initial Metric Macro

The Apply Initial Metric macro applies the initial metric to the current model for simulating the inflation of airbags.

Refer to the PAM-CRASH documentation for details about using the initial metric.

Before using this macro, you must specify an .im file in the METRIC control card. This file specifies the conditions of the airbag inflation.

Figure 1.

When you click Apply Initial Metric, the macro applies the settings in the .im file to the currently-loaded model and displays the inflation motion in the graphics area. When the execution is complete, the macro creates a .log file named initial_metric.nodes that contains the NODAL information.
