Exodus Interface  

Solver EXODUS-II
Type of mesh unstructured
Dimension 2D and 3D

(Return)

The EXODUS interface creates a data file for EXODUS II. 

EXODUS II is a model developed to store and retrieve data for finite element analyses. An EXODUS II data file is a random access, machine independent, binary file that is written and read via C, C++, or Fortran library routines which comprise the Application Programming Interface (API).

The grid must be written out as an unstructured mesh.

Supported element types are:

Volume Elements
HEXA_8, HEXA_20, PENTA_6, PENTA_15, TETRA_4, TETRA_10
Shell Elements
QUAD_4, QUAD9, TRI_3, TRI_6
Bar Elements
BAR_2, BAR_3

Defining the solver "EXODUS II"

Under the menu "Output", "Select solver" → EXODUS-II

Defining boundary conditions for EXODUS II

After generating the mesh, boundary conditions can be defined for solver EXODUS II.  Select the "BC" icon in the "Output" menu. The "Boundary Conditions" window will open allowing to set the boundary conditions for the EXODUS II mesh.

The EXODUS II boundary conditions supported by this interface are:

Creating the EXODUS II data file

Select "Write Input".  First you need to select an existing unstructured domain file from the list of available files, then and  you can specify the following options for the EXOUDS interface: The interface generates the EXODUS II data file in the same directory as the current project directory.
