  • Figure 1 - ASCII Interface

Purpose: This interface is used to browse and plot time history data contained in various ASCII databases written by LS-DYNA like nodout, secforc etc...

There are approximately 30 different files that can be processed through this interface. Similar time history data output by LS-DYNA version 970 and beyond in binary files called binout can be processed using the Binout Interface on page 2.

Controls:

  • ASCII Key: (*)=exist, (+)=loaded
  • ASCII File Selection List (1)
  • ID Selection List (2)
  • Component Selection List (3)
