Our customer wants to know, which entry in the Harwell-Boeing output of the stiffness matrix correlates to which degree of freedom in the model?
The following information concerns the interpretation of the Harwell-Boeing output generated from an ANSYS run. This information is current for release 9.0.
Included in this package are:
1. A Word document, Harwell-Boeing.doc, that describes the Harwell-Boeing output from ANSYS and the interpretation of that output.
2. An input file, hbmat.inp, that will generate Harwell-Boeing output using both the .full file and the .sub file.
3. The printed output from the input file, hbmat.out.
4. The Harwell-Boeing output from the .full file, hbfull.matrix.
5. The AUX2 dump of file.full, hbfull.list
6. An Excel spreadsheet to process the .full file dump, hbfull.xls.
7. The Harwell-Boeing output from the .sub file, hbsub.matrix.
8. The AUX2 dump of file.sub, hbsuba.list
9. The SELIST dump of file.sub, hbsubb.list
10. An Excel spreadsheet to process the .sub file dump, hbsub.xls.
11. The .full file from the run, file.full.
12. The.sub file from the run, file.sub.
Another option available for users who wish to retrieve the matrices from the ANSYS program is the /DEBUG command. If the user wants to study the matrices, AND IF THE PROBLEM IS SMALL, the /DEBUG,-3,,,1 is available. This command is documented in the Guide to ANSYS User Programmable Features. The /DEBUG command will print the matrices in the output for review and verification. This may not be a convenient method of extracting the data for input to another program.
Questions concerning this should be directed to ANSYS Technical Support.
