Generating time-history plots  arindam1211@rediffmail.com  28.09.2015 12:44:39
How to extract DOF velocity / displacement time-history plot following simulation? In particular, how to generate something like Fig. 7 [Graph of time serie of the y coordinate of the midspan Mass Point] in the Tutorial problem "simple supported beam ". Regards, Arindam Ghosh.

Dear Arindam, thx for your question. Use following procedure: Select the object (a mass point) you want to observe, use menu Object-Change and set its save option as true. Make your simulation. Calculated data will be saved to a TXT file in the same directory as your model data file (or the application directory). Then use a spreadsheet or a specialized application (e.g. gnuplot) for generation of a graph. If you want to use a spreadsheet, simply open the TXT file, copy whole content and paste it inside the spreadsheet. Let me know whether you've succeeded. Petr

Thanks Petr. YES. I'm now able to extract the DOF time history plot via Excel spreadsheet by first saving the state variable. Regards, Arindam.
