  • Figure 1 – History Interface


This interface is used to display and plot data for various data over time. It allows selection of various nodal, element, and material quantities from binary files like d3plot, d3dtht etc…

Depending on the type of binary files loaded, the list of available components will change. Time history plotting data from d3plot files is also possible. However, typically a d3plot file contains data for state animation. Consequently the resolution of time history is limited to the number of states in d3plot files. For higher resolution time history plotting, either d3thdt, binout, or various ASCII files should be used.
