  • Figure 1 - Binout Interface

Purpose: This interface facilitates the plotting of time history data from binary database output generated by LS-DYNA versions ls970 and newer. The contents of these binary files is the same as ASCII files except these files are stored as branches in a single binary file from smp versions of LS-DYNA. The branch system makes it easy to navigate and there is even the option to open multiple files for comparison. Note that the mpp version of ls970 produces a series of binout files: binout0000, binout0001, etc...
