plot2bc

Generation of *BOUNDARY_PRESCRIBED_MOTION cards or *INTERFACE_LINKING_NODE_SET binary file out of d3plot for a given node set.

Plot2bc reads nodal time history data from a LS-DYNA d3plot file and writes it into a LS-DYNA input format file with load curves and prescribed boundary condition cards or into an *INTERFACE_LINKING_NODE style file.


usage: plot2bc [options]

options:

-i nodelist-file file with list of nodes
(default: nodelist)
format: one node per line; "*" is comment
or *NODE keyword format (incl *NODE)
-free try to read node-list file in free format
-sort sort node IDs in output in ascending order
-mult check and prevent multiple node IDs (turns sorting on)
-g plotfile LS-DYNA binary plot data file
(default: d3plotor plot.infmak)
-o result-file name for resulting LS-DYNA input section
(default: load_bc)
-l offset offset value for load curve numbers
-dis |-vel |-acc read and write nodal displacement, velocity
or acceleration values
(default: displacements)
-lt  |-mt  |-ut read and write lower/middle/upper temperature (only choose ONE position)
-par load curve scaling and offset as *PARAMETER
-inf output binary *INTERFACE_LINKING style file
-v gives version number
-h give help on screen
