Extraction of NODOUT data (binout or ASCII format) out of d3plot file for a given node set.

The program extracts data available in the nodout file from d3plot files. The output are files in the standard nodout format. plot2nodout reads nodal time history data from a LS-DYNA plotfile and writes it into a nodout-format file.

usage: plot2nodout [options]


-l nodelist-file file with list of nodes for the nodout file
(default: nodelist)
format: one node per line; "*" is comment
-g plotfile LS-DYNA binary plot data file
(default: d3plot)
-o nodout-result name for resulting nodout file
(default: nodout.plot)
-norot no rotational data is written to the nodout
(default: rotational data written as zero)
-p ### print intervall for stdout
(default: each state, "1")
-coor output coordinates in keyword format
(no nodout data written)
-v gives version number
-h give this help on screen
