ADINA Interface

Solver ADINA
Type of mesh unstructured mesh
Dimension 2D and 3D



The ICEM-CFD/ADINA translator creates a formatted input file necessary to run the ADINA solver.

Creating the ADINA Input Files

The translator writes the ADINA input files using an unstructured domain file and its corresponding boundary conditions file. To create the ADINA input file, select the translator "ADINA" in the "Output" menu . After clicking "ADINA input" you can specify options for the interface: The interface generates the ADINA file in the project directory. The ADINA formatted input file contains the following information:

Defining boundary conditions

To specify boundary conditions for ADINA, click on the icon "BC" under the "Output" menu. Please refer to the GENERAL REMARKS section for more details.

Contact Group:

To define a contact group, select a subface or a domain for a 3D model, in order to tag the TARGETTED surface (or volume) and the CONTACTED surface (or volume). Repeat the above procedure for all subfaces or domains for which you need to define a Contact boundary condition .
