Bill of Materials and more!

Completed the implementation of the viewing the bill of materials of the finite element model with full listing of element type, mass, material family, etc… Additionally, when each part row is clicked, it opens a new layer showing the detailed material information and any related curve display. Our idea was to have one place to…

Database Cross-Section

Implemented viewing of cross-section information. LS-DYNA® outputs nodes/elements for automatic cross-section definition (via *SET_PART) and this information is captured in the D3HSP file as shown below.

Simulation Timing Information

Implemented feature to view timing information. Three types of data can be viewed. 1. Timing distribution based on some major routines in LS-DYNA such as contact, element, etc. AND individual contact based. 2. When running in distributed environment, you can view the host/processor based timing distribution. 3. Using data available in 2, you can view…

Implicit Solution History

For every implicit converged step, LS-DYNA reports the number of iterations it took to converge and the number of stiffness reformations it had to make. To view this, d3View added a support to view the stiffness reformations, number of iterations, energy, and displacement norm time-history.
