Tabulated info about failed elements and NaN forces or NaN velocities.

This program checks the output files of the simulation (eg mes00xx) for all kind of failed elements. It gives a summarized information about failure reason (eg neg. volume, neg. jacobian) and properties of failed elements. Optional creation of session files for display and grouping of failed elements in Animator3.

usage: check-failed [options] message-file[s]


-list list with elements and times
-pid give PID summary and PID for -list
-g optional d3plot-file (needed for property info)
default: d3plot
-ide create Animator3 session file for displaying elements that
failed during LS-DYNA run ("ide ele ###")
values for :
all - all failed elements
shell - failed shells
solid - failed solids
beam - failed beams
jacob - failed shells due to negative Jacobian
volume - failed solids due to negative volume
master - failed beams due to failed master
segment (spotweld)
-group create Animator3 session file for generating groups (Jacobian, negative volume, and other failed elements)
-version version info

% check_failed -l -pid mes*
