Application Maintainence

During the software development cyclce, numerous sample D3HSP files are used for testing purposes. As and when we get new bugs reported using our feedback form, they are fixed in a “live” mode. Fixing bugs this way for a production code during the early software deployment helps to address users issues quickly. During these live […]

Bill of Materials and more!

Completed the implementation of the viewing the bill of materials of the finite element model with full listing of element type, mass, material family, etc… Additionally, when each part row is clicked, it opens a new layer showing the detailed material information and any related curve display. Our idea was to have one place to […]

Database Cross-Section

Implemented viewing of cross-section information. LS-DYNA® outputs nodes/elements for automatic cross-section definition (via *SET_PART) and this information is captured in the D3HSP file as shown below.

Simulation Timing Information

Implemented feature to view timing information. Three types of data can be viewed. 1. Timing distribution based on some major routines in LS-DYNA such as contact, element, etc. AND individual contact based. 2. When running in distributed environment, you can view the host/processor based timing distribution. 3. Using data available in 2, you can view […]

New Server!

Upgraded the server. Should expect a 3x speed up. Also enabled cache to render static pages.

Contact Definitions

Added extraction and viewing of contact interface definitions. The view part is currently hooked up as an initial interface but will be redesigned as we hook up other options. Any suggestions on the display are welcome.

Multiple Curve Plotting

Implemented multi-curve plotting support for both IE and Firefox. Here is the snapshot:

Scalable Vector Graphics

Fixed a major bug affecting SVG rendering in Mozilla Firefox. Now plotting of any SVG is rendered properly in both Internet Explorer and Firefox. Firefox rendering seems a little slow though. Example of svg usage is a simple pie-chart showing mass-distribution.

Job File Name and Title

Implemented feature to view the job name and the job title at the top of the page. This is helpful to associate the contents quickly to the job name/title irrespective of the page location.

HyperElastic Fit

Added support to view hyperelastic fit information.

Implicit Solution History

For every implicit converged step, LS-DYNA reports the number of iterations it took to converge and the number of stiffness reformations it had to make. To view this, d3View added a support to view the stiffness reformations, number of iterations, energy, and displacement norm time-history.
