Engine Keyword Generate H3D contour output results for SPH.



#optional next line(s) that lists the parts to save results for.

part_ID1... part_IDN


# Stress tensor results for all integration points
# Specific energy density results for only parts IDs 356 and 293.

Data Description SI Unit Example
Keyword3 Output types. 3  
Keyword4 Output types. 3  
part_IDN Optional list of part IDs for which results will be output.  


  1. The syntax /H3D/ELEM/Keyword3/Keyword4 is also valid.
  2. When PART IDs are listed after the /H3D/SPH line, the specified results will only be output for those parts.
  3. Output can be a, scalar or tensor as defined in the following tables.
    Table 1. Scalar Output
    Keyword3 Keyword4 Description
    DAM1, DAM2, DAM3   Principal damage values in local cracking skew direction 1, 2 or 3 for material LAW24.
    DAMA   Maximum of damage over time of all /FAIL criteria acting on one material. Refer to the specific /FAIL law used for how damage is calculated.
    DENS   Density
    DIAMETER   SPH Diameter
    DOMAIN   SPMD domain number of an element.
    ENER   Specific energy density (internal energy divided by the element mass).
    EPSP   Plastic strain for material laws greater than 28.
    MASS   Element mass
    OFF   Element status.
    Where the result output is:
    = -1
    Element is not active (it is defined in an activated rigid body).
    = 0
    Deleted element.
    Between 0 and 1
    Under failure process.
    = 1
    Active element.
    P   Pressure
    SIGEQ   Equivalent stress based on a material’s yield criteria. Some examples of yield criteria are von Mises, Hill or Barlat.
    SIGX, SIGY, SIGZ, SIGXY, SIGYZ, SIGZX   Stress in specified direction.
    TEMP   Temperature
    VONM   von Mises stress
    i or ALL
    User material (/MAT/USERij) law output for user defined variable i. Also, requests USR output for some Radioss material laws. USR1 output is requested using UVAR=1.
