Interfacing with LS-NIKE3D

Overview of how the HyperView applications interface with the LS-NIKE3D solver.

When you select a model or results file, HyperView automatically detects the file type and selects the proper reader to import the data. If more than one reader claims to support the selected file format, a dialog listing those readers is displayed. From this dialog, you can select the preferred reader.

To extract only a selected set of results, use the external translator HvTrans to create an H3D file.

Solver Interface Support

HyperView supports result files created from the NIKE 3-D n3plot solver using the .n3plot file format.

Calculating the Supported Result "pressure"

For the supported result "pressure", the pressure is generated by the average of the 3 global stresses:
Pr = -(StressX + StressY + StressZ) / 3.0
