4.2.2.2. Classification of results written in fil files

In this section, the various types of results that can be written in a results (fil) file and that can be postprocessed by Fil2Matlab are classified in various categories, depending on the way in which the extraction of the results is handled by Fil2Matlab, and on how the source codes of Abaqus2Matlab are organized. Five possibilities can be distinguished for a type of result written in a fil file:

The result belongs to category 1. The output of category 1 corresponds to records containing as result data only floating point numbers (no integers or strings).

The result belongs to category 2. The output of category 2 corresponds to records containing as result data one integer as the first output and floating point numbers as the subsequent output of each record.

The result belongs to category 3. The output of category 3 corresponds to records containing as result data both numerical values (doubles or integers) and strings.

The result does not belong to any category from above, but it can be processed in Fil2Matlab by a special function especially designed for the particular result type. Such functions are named as "RecX.m", where X is the record key corresponding to the results that are postprocessed by this function. For example, Rec1900.m corresponds to the record key 1900 which characterizes element definitions output.

The result does not belong to any categories from above and it cannot be postprocessed by Fil2Matlab.

In the following table, each column contains:

First column: Description of the output quantity

Second column: Record key

Third column: Output variable identifier that has to be specified in the input file in order to print the corresponding result to the fil file

Fourth column: Category of the result type concerning the record contents

Fifth column: Type of the result concerning the reference to the model (node-type, element-type, analysis-type). For node-type results, the option *NODE FILE is specified in the input file and for element-type results the corresponding option is *EL FILE.
