Interfacing with nSOFT

Overview of the HyperViewnSOFT interface.

HyperView allows you to write a partial FES file for fatigue analysis using nSOFT. Both the ASCII and binary formats of the FES file are supported.

HyperView can use a fatigue configuration file, HVFatigue.cfg, to write out a partial FES file, or you can write the FES file from the Stress (t) or Strain (t) tensors directly. A default fatigue configuration file is provided in the HyperView bin directory. The provided file supports results from the Radioss, Nastran, LS-DYNA and Abaqus solvers. However, you can create a custom fatigue configuration file for any other solver and use it to write out a partial FES file. See Fatigue Configuration File for details on how to create and use a custom partial FES file.
