_e.out file

An ASCII format results file which can be used for monitoring energy output from nonlinear analysis.

File Creation

This file is created for any implicit nonlinear static or nonlinear transient run when the NLENRG Subcase/Bulk Entry pair is specified.

File Contents

This file provides global and per-entity energy output on-the-fly from an implicit nonlinear run.

File Format

The file format is self-explanatory and contains labeled energy data.
