Optimization Output Data

Every optimization run generates a variety of files.

The figure below summarizes the output from a typical optimization run.

Figure 1. The output from an optimization of the four bar mechanism

The output from an optimization run is stored in a directory where the simulation was performed. The directory is given a unique name so that it does not conflict with any other existing directory. For the example shown, the directory test-4bar_115807 was created.

Inside this directory, subdirectories and two output files are created.
