Generic Extractor (GenEx)

Extracting responses and histories from text files
GenEx
Extracting responses and histories from a text file
An example using GenEx to extract responses
GenEx provides features for extracting entities from text files. This allows LS-OPT to be used with any solver code that produces a text database. GenEx is a tool to create the .g6 file used by LS-OPT to extract responses and histories. It is included in the LS-OPT distribution as the executable file genex.
An example using "Repeated anchor vector" to extract histories
In this example we will use "Repeated anchor vector" to extract histories of the value for "kinetic energy" in the "d3hsp" file created by LS-DYNA.
An example using "Column vector" to extract histories
Column vectors are useful for extracting vectors in tables. In this example we extract a force vector.
