Hi I am a new user of abaqus2matlab. I created a script and was trying to run it. Unfortunately, I am getting an error. Output argument "odbOut" (and maybe others) not assigned during call to "readElementFieldOdb". [odbOut_S,odbDat_S,rpyOut_S]=readElementFieldOdb(odb_name,stepName,instanceName,elsetName,outputVar,indOut); I would really appreciate your help with resolving this problem. Barbara
Hello, I have looked through the forum and tried looking for an answer to my question but I can't find one. Hoping you can help. I am running an Abaqus/Explicit Dynamic analysis and looking to extract the reaction forces at a reference which has a Kinematic Coupling to another region in the model. In my .inp file I have included the line: *FILE OUTPUT,NUMBER INTERVAL=100 *NODE FILE,NSET=GroundReactionPoint RF This runs just fine, and generates the appropriate .odb, .sel, and .fil files. It looks like the size of the .fil file grows as the analysis proceeds - as if data are being written. After running the "Documentation.m" to add Fil2str to my path, I am running the following commands in Abaqus2Matlab to attempt to extract the reaction forces: Rec = Fil2str('test.fil'); out = Rec104(Rec); The Rec output is a 1x771115 char. The out variable always comes back empty. Do you have any advice? I have uploaded the .inp file in .txt format. Thank you in advance and thanks for all the work you have put into this software!
Hello, I'm working on a large project and my .fil file is ~5.5 GB. I am unable to extract it in Matlab - Matlab will usually just crash on me, or I get an error based on memory. I have successfully done this on 0.7 GB files. I'm wondering what the limit is on the .fil file size is for bringing into Matlab, or if there is a workaround to this problem? I extract COORD, S, and POR for my post-processing. I was thinking that instead of calling all 3 in the .inp file I could just call one at a time to lower the size of my .fil file[s]? That may only get me so far. Any advice would be helpful! Thanks, Ryley
